Tea Pot Cosy Competition
Don’t be bored during lock down, dig up those knitting needles or crochet hooks, dust over the sewing machine and start creating your very own tea cosy. Enter one of the categories to win; Best Crafted, Creative Genius or People’s Choice.
All cosies will be on display at our Devonshire Tea fundraiser event as part of Dry July in the Robyn Yates Centre, Leura.
There will be one winner for each section of a Devonshire Tea voucher for two at Bygone Beautys Tearooms. So, use whatever medium you wish and get started.
To enter deliver your tea cosy into our Leura or Penrith Wellness Centre after restrictions are over, clearly marked with the name of your tea cosy plus your name and contact details or bring it along on the 21st July just before our 10.15 Devonshire Tea session. Good Luck…

Once again we are raising funds for Cancer Wellness Support as part of the Dry July Campaign. How we do this is by going alcohol-free in July and encouraging others to join us or make a donation.
Having a month off alcohol has health benefits such as sleeping better, having more energy and of course, no hangovers! So you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself. It's a win-win!
During 2020 we raised over $4,000 as part of the campaign and received an equal dollar figure from Dry July allowing Cancer Wellness Support to purchase equipment to help in the detection, monitoring and treatment of lymphoedema.
To get involved and support Cancer Wellness Support, go to http://www.dryjuly.com
Once there click on the menu in the top right of the screen and select Donate. In the drop down box type in Cancer Wellness Support and search. From here you can choose to make a donation that will benefit Cancer Wellness Support.
