The Friends of Martin House Hospice recently raised £880 for the charity at a fundraising event held at the Bridge Hotel, Walshford.

Diamonds were definitely voted a girl’s best friend, as guests enjoyed a most interesting talk entitled The History of Diamonds by Nigel Townsend of Townsend Fine Jewellers, Wetherby.

Nigel illustrated the talk with excellent slides, and samples of real diamonds were eagerly circulated for guests to examine and, unfortunately, return.

Following the talk everyone enjoyed a mouthwatering afternoon tea, with the topic of conversation predominately being diamonds.
