A Hornchurch charity that cares for children with special needs is inviting the public to enjoy cakes and tea at their first fundraising event of the year.

Members of the public are invited to First Step’s Tasty Treats event at 10am-12.30pm on Friday, January 26 at Tangmere Crescent in Hornchurch.

The event is run by First Step’s volunteers and refreshments will be sold to support the work of First Step.

This year is First Step’s 30th anniversary and they will be celebrating the milestone achievement with a range of activities and events.

Chief executive Mark Halls said: “This year we recognise 30 years of First Step and have events planned for throughout 2018. “This weekend we will commence with ‘Tasty Treats’ on Friday and the Thurrock Male Voice Choir Concert on Saturday.

“We are delighted to be hosting both events here at First Step and invite all our friends, neighbours and supporters to please join us.”
