THE annual Strawberry Tea at the home of well-known Crieff lady Isabel Simpson takes place this Saturday, August 20.
Isabel and husband Bert have been supporting the Tayside Deaf Children’s Association for the past 12 years with their fundraising efforts and even had well wishers donate to the charity in lieu of presents for their recent golden wedding anniversary.
Because of the generosity of supporters such as Isabel, Tayside DCS is able to support local families by providing, for example, weekends where families with a deaf child can get together, MP3 neck loop systems and vibrating fire alarms. It also provides grants to help deaf young people with various projects.
All are welcome at Isobel’s mouthwatering event, which takes a donation at the door, in the garden of her home at Norwood in Commissioner Street from 10am to noon. A large awning will be in place this year and as well as the strawberry teas and home baking there will also be the popular tombola.
Isobel said: “Neighbours and friends have supported our event over the years and it’s thanks to them and those who come along that we can make such good donations to TDCS to enable them to continue the good work that they do for deaf children in our area.”
