High tea gives a lift
Delicious fundraiser serves up an extra large helping for our hospitals
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.

“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.
