The afternoon tea was held to support a charity in Hyderabad where Caroline Neudegg’s daughter, Kate, is working.
 
13 January was the day that St Hilary Village Hall was transformed into a little corner of India where visitors to the village enjoyed afternoon tea with a difference. Instead of a traditional afternoon tea they were treated to flavoursome morsels of Indian food followed by cakes flavoured with the fruits and spices of Southern India.

A special printed menu was on each table to whet people's appetite.... onion bhajis, vegetable pakoras, beetroot and paneer kebabs, coronation chicken and mango sandwiches and samosas. Plus, lots of yummy cakes.
 
Everything was home made even the jam, mango chutney and the raita! Tasters of the India teas – roadside ginger chai and turmeric tea – were also winners. 
The event was supported by friends and neighbours who, through their generosity, helped to raise £1,100 for the Promise charity. The money is sufficient to train a midwife in India for 2 years.
