KIND high tea time

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jessie Tol­son

TREAT your mum to a whole week­end of Mother’s Day love by at­tend­ing the Kids In Need of Do­na­tions Mother’s Day High Tea at Har­risons restau­rant next Satur­day.

The high tea is a good chance to break out nanna’s prized china and be in with a chance to win the best tea cup com­pe­ti­tion with a fab­u­lous prize of a sub­lime spa treat­ment.

KIND was es­tab­lished in 2008 in the Dou­glas re­gion as a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, by lo­cal peo­ple for lo­cal peo­ple, to help raise, ad­min­is­ter and dis­trib­ute funds to as­sist chil­dren in need of sup­port who have been di­ag­nosed with a ter­mi­nal or de­bil­i­tat­ing ill­ness or in­jury.

KIND as­sists af­fected chil­dren and their fam­i­lies with dis­creet, im­me­di­ate, short term and long term sup­port and bridges the gap be­tween the childs needs and the as­sis­tance pro­vided by ex­ter­nal agen­cies, that govern­ment and other agen­cies may not be able to pro­vide.

To date, KIND has raised over $ 100,000 for lo­cal kids in need through con­tin­u­ous fundrais­ing ef­forts and it is hope this spe­cial Mother’s Day high tea will be well sup­ported.

KIND sec­re­tary Jenny White said it will be a per­fect op­por­tu­nity to treat mums to some­thing spe­cial.

‘‘Come and take your mum out for tea, catch up with friends and help raise money for KIND,’’ she said.

‘‘For such a small com­mu­nity, the Dou­glas re­gion has al­ways been re­ally gen­er­ous and helped out.

‘‘And thanks to the bub­bly gen­eros­ity of Har­risons, there will be a free glass of bub­bles on ar­rival.’’

The event will see lovely fresh sand­wiches, tea and cof­fee, lucky door prizes, a Bod­ies in Mo­tion dance show, dis­plays of Mother’s Day gift ideas from lo­cal busi­nesses and a fan­tas­tic raf­fle where you will be in with a chance to win a voucher to one of 10 of the best restau­rants in the re­gion.

The high tea will be held at Har­risons on Satur­day, May 11, from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

Tick­ets are only $30 per per­son and must be pre-pur­chased. Con­tact Jenny White on 0407 159 379 or jenny—white@big­pond.com and don’t for­get to bring your best tea cup.
