Helen Tilley, a staff member, said: “Every year we select and support a charity, raising money at events that we hold in the boutique. This year our chosen charity was closer to home. We all really miss dressing up so we decided to walk from the boutique to Tom’s Cakes in St Ives in our finery – hats and all - our take on ‘ladies who lunch’.”
