Or­gan­i­sa­tions ben­e­fit

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

There was a big turnout for Tatura All Saints char­ity af­ter­noon on Thurs­day de­spite the gloomy weather.

More than 100 peo­ple, in­clud­ing many dis­trict nurs­ing home res­i­dents, turned up for the fun af­ter­noon.

The af­ter­noon, held to thank the many vol­un­teers and or­gan­i­sa­tions who had worked so hard in the com­mu­nity for the ben­e­fit of Tatura, fea­tured mu­sic by John and Glenda Kre­is­feld along with a fash­ion pa­rade.

Guild spokesper­son Phyl Bram­ley in­vited peo­ple to ‘‘wear a smile and a 1960s look’’.

She said the per­son judged the most ap­pro­pri­ate was pre­sented with a sash and prize by Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion guest Merle Krause. The win­ner was Lois Van Heek.

As well as glam­our girls strut­ting their stuff on the cat­walk in their 1960s gear, there was a guest ap­pear­ance from Aus­tralia’s favourite mar­su­pial, the kan­ga­roo.

Mrs Bram­ley said in an af­ter­noon of high­lights Rev­erend Jude and Bill Craven stole the show.

Prizes were given out dur­ing the af­ter­noon, with tick­ets in a large ham­per, gen­er­ously do­nated by Unilever, keenly sought af­ter.

Tatura Milk In­dus­tries pro­vided tasty cheeses for all to en­joy.

Mrs Bram­ley thanked all in­volved in set­ting up for the event, spe­cially Rob Cruick­shank, who did all the heavy lift­ing the day be­fore.

‘‘Pro­ceeds from the af­ter­noon were split four ways be­tween Tatura Fire Brigade, Tatura Hos­pi­tal and Parkvilla, Tatura SES and Tatura Com­mu­nity House,’’ she said.

Fash­ion­istas: Jil­lian Earl, Barb Hal­li­well (com­pere), Ursula Weitacher, Lois Van Heek, Phyl Bram­ley (or­gan­iser), Glenda McLeod and (front) Skippy’ Rev Jude Ben­ton, at Thurs­day’s All Saints char­ity af­ter­noon.
