Cups of tea were washed down by residents and mayors from neighbouring boroughs at a charity event on Wednesday.
The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Sayonara Luxton, held a charity tea at Windsor Guildhall to raise money for the Household Cavalry Foundation.
Guests listened to a talk from the director of the foundation, Lieutenant Colonel Giles Stibbe, who spoke about the work the foundation does in supporting soldiers and veterans of the cavalry.
The charity is Cllr Luxton’s chosen mayor’s charity and she said: “I think the work they do is very important and 25 per cent of the people they help are in the Royal Borough.
“We had mayors from surrounding boroughs showing their support, it was good of them to come as well as a lot of residents.”
The afternoon tea raised about £1,000 for the foundation.
The next event organised by the mayor will be a three-course meal and book signing by Hollywood producer Paul Hitchcock.
It will take place at the Guildhall on December 3. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and tickets.
