Gatton Star - - Front Page -

DON­NING the lat­est spring and sum­mer fash­ions, hats and fas­ci­na­tors, 220 peo­ple sat down on to en­joy guest speak­ers, a fash­ion pa­rade and many cour­ses of de­lec­ta­ble high tea at Gat­ton Shire Hall on Satur­day.

More money has been raised this year than at the last high tea two years ago, which raised $2000.

All the money raised was do­nated to both the Gat­ton and

Lai­d­ley hos­pi­tal aux­il­iaries.

Event or­gan­iser Fiona Yar­row said the event was a huge suc­cess.

All money raised was do­nated to the Gat­ton and Lai­d­ley Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iaries.

“At this stage we have raised more than our to­tal two years ago, which was $2000,” she said.

The charis­matic Ruby Slip­perz was the MC for the af­ter­noon and there were also two guest speak­ers – for­mer nurses Pixie An­nat, pres­i­dent of the Lady Mus­grave Trust, and Judy Magub, di­rec­tor of the Lady Mus­grave Trust.

About 20 gen­er­ous busi­nesses do­nated to the high tea with more than 60 raf­fle prizes for the guests to win.

Ms Yar­row was pleased to hear pos­i­tive feed­back from all the guests and thanked ev­ery­one for their sup­port.

“We are al­ways look­ing to sup­port other lo­cal char­i­ties and that is what we are all about,” she said.
