Tea cups will be clinking in the lavish surrounds of Mount Juliet Estate later this month when The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation host their annual afternoon tea.
Following on the success of last year’s sell-out event, the Jack & Jill team will be joined by special guests, families and friends to enjoy the hospitality, good company and Georgian ambience of Mount Juliet. Afternoon Tea will be served at 2.30pm.
Places are limited and can be booked on www.jackandjill.ie for €27 per person.
Through this initiative, the charity is hoping to raise much-needed funds and awareness for its critical home nursing and respite service for sick children locally.
Jack & Jill is currently supporting 11 families in Kilkenny. The Afternoon Tea campaign sees every €16 raised funding one hour of home nursing care for a sick child.
