Tea, cake and books in 2022

On Sat3 September 2022 we held a tea party to support Mary Grover’s new book, Steel City Readers. We want to raise £12,500 so that the publisher, Liverpool University Press, can make the book free to download online. You can read about the tea party on our blog here and see all the photos from the party below, including of our guests of honour, the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Sheffield.
