The Ivy Bath Brasserie hosted an afternoon tea for local hospice, Dorothy House Hospice Care to raise funds for their Dorothy’s Tea Party campaign on Friday 8 June.

The event was hosted in The Baldwin Room, the recently launched first floor private dining room at The Ivy Bath Brasserie on Milsom Street. Thirty guests enjoyed champagne and full afternoon tea and over £600 was raised for the charity.

The event was hosted by Phillippa Watson from Dorothy House and was attended by special guest speaker, Paralympic swimming champion and Dorothy House Ambassador Stephanie Millward MBE.

Stephanie Millward said of the event: “I greatly enjoyed meeting local Bath supporters of Dorothy House and talking to them about my role as an ambassador for the hospice, my life in athletics and how swimming helps me overcome the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis. It was good to hear more about the hospice’s Dorothy’s Tea Party campaign which is a brilliant way to host a party with friends while also doing something worthwhile to support a good cause.”

Phillippa Watson, Philanthropy Manager at Dorothy House said: “Our sincere thanks to The Ivy Bath Brasserie for generously hosting this afternoon tea fundraiser in their stunning upstairs Baldwin Room. We were delighted to have Stephanie speaking at our Afternoon Tea event where we also shared the latest news on Dorothy House and our Dorothy’s Tea Party campaign. Summer is the perfect time to get together with friends, family or colleagues for a Dorothy’s Tea Party or BBQ to support your local Hospice and help raise funds.”
