The Ewe annual Charity Tea Party raised €700 for Cope Foundation in Skibbereen.
Proceeds from the garden entry fees all day and the afternoon cake sales went to Cope.
This year was extra special since The Ewe Experience is celebrating our 25th year in West Cork and we were delighted to be supporting Cope Foundation.
Enthusiastic volunteers Norma Lane and Frances O Donovan manned the afternoon cakes.
