Handbags and high tea for charity

Women looking for an afternoon of indulgence in Northumberland can do just that, courtesy of a North-East charity.

Hope 4 Kidz, which supports children with a range of special needs, has organised a Handbags and High Tea event at the MacDonald Linden Hall Golf and Country Club, near Longhorsley, next month.

The event, which runs from 1pm to 4pm on August 15, will offer everything from shopping to socialising, while supporting a good cause at the same time.

A range of stalls have been signed up for the day, which includes a delicious afternoon tea along with various raffles and auctions .

Guests will also be able to watch beauty demonstrations and see the spa facilities at the hotel.

Tickets cost £15.95, which includes a goody bag.
