Sweet fundraiser

By Tatura Guardian

The great Winter High Tea proved to be yet another success raising more than $200 for The Lions Club of Tatura.

Tatura Community House and community members dined on and indulged in scones, cakes, and slices last Tuesday for the annual high tea event.

Co-ordinator Bev Roberts said every chair was filled on the day.

‘‘We had 60 people fill the room with lots of repeat locals coming back for the food and good company,’’ Ms Roberts said.

She said the event would not have happened without the help of Che Brown, Mignon Campbell, Janenne Veitch, Chris Court, Darlene Lamperd, Sally Sherman, Jenny Pagon and Lena Borzini.

Marilyn Papplestone’s name was drawn for first prize in the raffle, leaving second prize open for Marlain Perry.

Ms Roberts said this year $285 was raised and donated to The Lions Club of Tatura, Need for Feed project.

‘‘We had a few lions members attend on the day and there’s a push at the moment to support the farmers so we decided our raffle would go to them,’’ she said.

The high tea concluded with memories of laughter and money raised for a good cause.
