Gatton celebrates Mayoress high tea

LADIES, and a few gentlemen, dressed in their finest to attend the Lockyer Valley Mayoress Charity Fund High Tea and Fashion Parade.

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

Committee member 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.
