Tea for 200 - come and join us!

An ambitious 'Tea for 200' is being planned by an Island befriending charity to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Isle of Man Live at Home Schemes operate six groups, sending volunteers to visit elderly and isolated people in their homes.

On July 3, during the week of Tywnald Day and the Manx Jubilee bank holiday, the charity will be serving tea, sandwiches and home-made cream cakes at the Promenade Methodist Church in Douglas.

And they're hoping business people in the capital will come along in their lunch breaks to join the party.

Over two sittings, Live at Home expects to serve 200 teas.

South Douglas scheme manager Jan Farrell is hoping for a joyful get-together:
