News ArticleWoodbridge dons wedding hats for royal celebration

A tea party with a royal twist is being held in Woodbridge to celebrate the wedding of Meghan Markle to Prince Harry.

Town shoppers are being asked to don their wedding hats for a bake sale to raise money for charity.

Cakes are being made by Christine’s Patisserie and tearoom, The Cake Shop, Honey and Harvey and Woodbridge Kitchen Company with all proceeds going to Scotty’s Little Soldiers, dedicated to supporting bereaved British Forces children and young people.

The first person to turn up to the bake sale wearing a hat to mark the occasion will be given a special commemorative mug to mark the royal wedding.

Kya Harrison from Woodbridge Kitchen Company said: “We want the shop filled with people in their finest headgear – from fascinators and feathers through to wide brims and sequins.

“There will be a huge selection of freshly baked goods on sale and there is no better way to mark a wedding than with a large slice of cake – especially if it has been prepared by the wonderful bakers from our town.

“What’s more, money will be donated to a charity which is very close to the hearts of the royal couple.”

Scotty’s Little Soldiers has been personally chosen by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to benefit from donations marking their May 19th wedding ceremony.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We are honoured to have been selected and incredibly grateful for the support.

“Without your kind donations, we cannot continue to provide the long-term support to the children of our fallen heroes.

“We support hundreds of children across the UK who, at such a young age, have already experienced the tragic loss of a parent. For all our members, Scotty’s Little Soldiers provides a vital support network which helps keep them smiling.

The Woodbridge Royal Bake Sale will be held at Woodbridge Kitchen Company on the Thoroughfare on Saturday May 19th.

Don’t forget your wedding hat!
