“I had a lovely afternoon at the One Voice High Tea Event. The room was beautiful, the sandwiches and cakes were delicious and, like the tea and coffee, were plentiful and supplied with smiles by the One Voice volunteers. But more than all of that, the company was superb. It was a genuinely lovely way to catch up with familiar faces and make some new contacts too.”
