Mad Hatters Tea Party for David Toms

Setting themselves a target of 2,500€ for paralysed biker and renowned Costa del Sol photographer David Toms, the organisers of the Mad Hatters Tea Party were ecstatic to discover their final tally was over 5,000€!

The money was raised at a Mad Hatters Tea Party held at the Terrace in Benavista and was a sell-out event with lashings of tea, cakes, sandwiches, mince pies and mulled wine.

Entertainment was provided by Costa del Sol favourites Antony Wolfson, Johnny Baker, Helena Paul and Nathan Dean with the event compared by the ever bubbly Hannah Murray from Talk Radio Europe.

Jo Pitcher, owner of The Terrace, was thrilled with donations to the raffle with the star prize of a luxury night's stay with breakfast and dinner for two at the Kempinski Hotel Bahia in Estepona. Many other Costa del Sol businesses including La Sala Group, El Oceano restaurant also offered big raffle prizes.
Jackie Stone, co-organiser of the tea party with Antony and Jo and representing the David Toms Support Fund, was overwhelmed at the amount raised for the fund which cannot attain charitable status as it is for an individual.

Michel and Steven Euesden, and the EWN Media Group 'family' forgo their Christmas party this year and, instead, donated a cheque to pay for one whole month of care for David. They also presented David with a huge Christmas hamper which included a coffee machine,  and of course a bottle of Baileys, David's favourite treat. 

Currently, David receives no financial support from the state, apart from a minimal monthly amount for permanent disability, although the paperwork is currently in progress. This means his support team relying almost solely on donations for David’s care on a month-to-month basis.
