The owner of a tearooms in a Moorlands town has laid on a ‘thank you’ event for those who have helped keep a charity shop going for 20 years.

Paul Pickford, who runs the Victorian Tearooms in Cheadle, invited staff and volunteers – past and present – from the Cheadle Cancer Research UK shop to a special event on Monday (July 11).

Paul told the Cheadle & Tean Times: “Denise Dunsmore, who is the manager of the Cancer Research UK Shop on High Street in Cheadle, was joined by many of the volunteers who have helped keep the shop going for 20 years, at The Victorian Tearooms.

My staff and I were more than happy to welcome the volunteers as we all wished to support this worthy cause.
“They were there to celebrate this 20 year milestone with cake and drinks and to socialise.”

Paul added: “They are all volunteers who, collectively, have raised a huge amount of money for Cancer Research over the 20 year period and I’m sure deserve all our respect and gratitude.

All the volunteers are valued, however worthy of mention is Jean Wheawall who started with Cancer Research 27 years ago, June Jackson who started 28 years ago with whom they say there is never a dull moment.

Margaret Millson, 27 years whose husband, Keith has also been a volunteer for five years.
“They have 20 volunteers now and may their great work alongside the public support for such a fantastic charity continue.”
