Being very involved with horse and pony welfare I was delighted to attend, with a group of like-minded friends, the Brooke Christmas afternoon tea at Tennants. We all enjoyed delicious food, browsing for gifts, the raffle and a super fashion show and we were so pleased to be able to help this wonderful charity. We are looking forward to Christmas in Yorkshire 2021.
