Dartmouth's Mistral blows in for charity
Dartmouth Caring’s Positive Café was the beneficiary from the autumn collection launch at the town’s branch of clothes store Mistral on October 16.
The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was organised by Mistral manager Tracie Fox and featured Antonia Suner providing music, food from the Picnic Boat brought by Kevin Ward, food provided by Sylvia Merriman of Second Love, announcements provided by Town Crier Les Ellis and volunteers to serve visitors tea and cake, including June Pockett.
The event was also attended by the man who was instrumental in the setting up of the Positive Café: David Merriman.
The event raised £295 for the Positive Café, which provides advice and support for those with neurological conditions such as Parkinsons, ME, MS, Chronic Fatigue and others. The day also included a raffle with gifts donated by Dartmouth Pet Foods, Mad Dog Art, Baxter’s Gallery, Paul Barclay, Brown’s Hotel, Simon Drew, Home, the Dolphin Pub, Gail at the Dartmouth Trust, Dartmouth Canvas Factory, Bellinis and the Dartmouth Wine Company.

This was the second event the shop has held in aid of Dartmouth Caring’s work and Tracie said she was delighted with how the day went.
“It was a really fun event and we are so grateful for the wonderful support we received from local businesses and people,” said Tracie. “We are delighted to support the Positive Café which does so much to help and support those dealing with difficult, life-changing conditions.”
Dartmouth Caring Chairman Dee Nutt said business people like Tracie giving their support allowed Dartmouth Caring to help people in the community every single day of the year.
“Tracie and all at Mistral have been wonderful supporters of Dartmouth Caring,” she said. “Tracie has enlisted so many people to help out with this day and we are grateful to all of them. Above all it was a really fun event which is helping to support the Positive Café - a vital and brilliant group that helps people and their carers.”
