A GREAT British-themed Communi-tea party was staged for customers and staff at Morrisons in Westbury on Bank Holiday Monday.

The tea party raised money for the supermarket's charity partner - Sue Ryder, which provides hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening and lifechanging diagnosis.

Hundreds of customers came through the doors to enjoy hot and cold drinks, a piece of cake and a raffle, which was a particularly popular activity and brought in plenty of customers.

Lisa Litterick, the store's community champion, said: "We had an incredible turn out.

“So many staff and customers joined in to make it one of the most fun events we have done in store.

“I am always blown away by the generosity of our loyal customers, Westbury truly is an amazing community and I feel privileged to be a part of it."

Jan Johnson, Sharon Reeves and Lisa Litterick manned the table from 10am- 4.30pm, ensuring all customers left the supermarket with an understanding of the charity’s work, and a piece of cake.

Morrisons raised a total of £321, with money still coming in, topping last year’s total of £232.

The supermarket’s attention is now on making its Summer Market as successful as the Communi-tea party, which will be on July 9 from 9am-3pm and will also raise money for Sue Ryder.
