The County Group’s Head Offices, Crewe


The County Group, Handelsbanken, Afford Bond and Hibberts Solicitors invited over 30 guests to enjoy a multi-award winning afternoon tea at the quirky Davenports Tea Rooms in Northwich, Cheshire. The tearooms are themed around Alice in Wonderland and display murals on the walls from various scenes in the story including the legendary Mad Hatters Tea Party.

Davenport’s tearooms have featured on BBC Breakfast TV and have won a long list of awards including Tea Guilds prestigious Top Tea Place and the Tastes of Cheshire Awards.  Other onsite facilities include a farm shop, florist, clothing boutique and spa.

The 4 local businesses treated their guests to afternoon tea and also collected a wonderful array of raffle prizes. The generous guests raised £230.00 for the Wingate Centre.

For more than 25 years, The Wingate Centre have been offering children and young adults with all levels of physical and learning disabilities and those who are disadvantaged the chance to have a holiday away from the limitations of home in a unique and safe environment. Our donations have been gratefully received and will go towards enhancing the facilities for everyone who visits the centre.

Lesley Garratt, HR Director at The County Group a local insurance broker said “County always try and support local charities and we’re proud to be part of this lovely afternoon treat for our guests. We know how important the money we raised for the centre is.”
