VISitors to Shibden Park might have thought they’d tumbled down the rabbit hole when they came across this Mad Hatter’s tea party.

Staff from business coaching company Insight with Passion dressed up as characters from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland to raise awareness for The Willow Foundation.

The charity organises special days for terminally-ill 16 to 40-year-olds.

Kate Hardcastle, aka Alice and senior partner at Insight with Passion, said: “Our team all share a strong desire to give back to the community and if we can help in some way to raise awareness for smaller, lesser-known charities we will do so.

“It’s been a fantastic day, with visitors to the park offering their support and asking about Willow Foundation.”

Their costumes will be donated to a children’s hospital and all snacks and cupcakes were donated to residents of nearby sheltered accommodation.

Insight with Passion thanked Fancy Dress Ball for the costumes and Kimberley Lewis-Gordon from KLG Photography.
