Isis Town and Country - - News -

DEB­BIE Green is pas­sion­ate about fundrais­ing for Care for Kids and the Wool­worths staff mem­ber is part of a team who are ready to go above and be­yond to sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

As part of their yearly fundrais­ing ef­forts, Mrs Green and the Childers Wool­worths staff are host­ing a Gar­den Tea Party, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards sick chil­dren at the Royal Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal in Bris­bane and the Bund­aberg Hos­pi­tal.

Mrs Green said this event would be a first for the re­gion.

“I do a lot of gar­den­ing at home and I just thought ‘wouldn’t it be nice to have a gar­den party?’ I could just vi­su­alise my huge gar­den with peo­ple sit­ting at nice ta­bles on a nice, sunny morn­ing in Septem­ber en­joy­ing some tea and food,” she said.

The party will be held on Septem­ber 27 at 27551 Bruce High­way, Isis River.

Mrs Green said there would be plenty for peo­ple to en­joy on the day.

“It’s go­ing to be a very pretty event. We have put a lot of ef­fort into it,” she said.

“There will be tea, cof­fee and a beau­ti­ful lunch, along with lucky prizes, a multi-draw prize, cake and plant stalls and a fash­ion pa­rade.”

Tick­ets to the Gar­den Tea Party cost $25 per per­son and can be pur­chased from the front desk at Childers Wool­worths from Au­gust 1.

“We are hop­ing to raise $3000 from this event so get your friends to­gether and come along,” Mrs Green said.
