Charnjit Bains held a tea party to mark 10 years since her mum, Nichhattar, died.


She was a kind, enthusiastic and wonderful woman who had a reputation for making tea and pakoras for everyone at any time! Nichhattar had Oesophageal cancer and died in 2009.


Afternoon Tea Party - Charnjit Bains - The Myton Hospices - Warwickshire



Inspired by the care her mum was given at the end of her life, Charnjit decided she wanted to help people who were also going through a similar situation. Her mum lived in Bedfordshire so wasn’t supported by Myton, but Charnjit decided to volunteer at her local hospice – Myton!


To mark 10 years since Nichhattar died, Charnjit made tea, coffee and cakes and invited friends to help celebrate her mum’s life as well as raising some money for Myton and MIND.


Charnjit said:

I’ve been volunteering at Myton for about three years – it took me some time before I felt ready. I volunteer at Warwick Myton Hospice two Sunday evenings a month.

The tea party was a roaring success!  I raised a total of £1,340 which was split between Myton and MIND. Around 30 ladies came and we had a great day catching up, eating and drinking. I also put on a raffle for them.

Thank you to Charnjit for your support – what a wonderful way to celebrate the life of someone so important to you!
