Tak­ing the high road to Christ­mas

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By RHI­AN­NON MCCON­NELL

A trip to Mel­bourne inspired a tasty way to raise money for fam­i­lies who will go with­out this Christ­mas.

Or­gan­is­ers Tanya Macdon­ald and Lucy Creighton usu­ally run a Christ­mas break­fast brunch, but de­cided to do some­thing dif­fer­ent this year and hold a Ladies High Tea.

Pro­ceeds are to go to St Anne’s Pantry food­bank.

‘‘I thought it wouldn’t be too hard to do, but would be a good com­mu­nity outreach,’’ Macdon­ald said.

‘‘It’s about mak­ing sure fam­i­lies have a good Christ­mas.’’

The high tea will take place at St Mary’s Angli­can Church in Whitby, and Macdon­ald said she was hop­ing to have 100 peo­ple at­tend.

‘‘We want to fill it. We’ve got all our bak­ers ready to go.’’
