A NEW Haslemere branch of Action Medical Research, led by Rita Bicknell, was launched with a tea party at Haslemere Methodist Church on October 12 and raised around £350.
More than 50 people attended the event with many of the cakes and sandwiches donated by Sainsbury’s.
There was also live music with soprano Diana North of Lindford singing songs from musicals.
The money raised will help fund vital medical research to help save and change the lives of sick and disabled babies and children.
Regional community fundraiser Ruth Dean said: “We are so pleased to see this new group of volunteers grow in Haslemere. They have done an absolutely amazing job and we can’t wait to see what they organise next.”
