A high tea with fine English china will raise cash for local families and help keep a vital facility in the Goulburn Valley.
Caroline Chisholm Society Goulburn Valley Pregnancy and Family Support Service will host its third high tea event on Sunday, May 20, at Shepparton Senior Citizens’ Centre.
The support service’s lead practitioner Maree Chin said they were hoping to raise more than $2000 from the high tea.
Volunteers and friends of the support service will cater for the day, and a series of high tea foods will be on the menu.
‘‘It’s a fancy afternoon tea, so we have cakes and slices. There will be lucky door prizes and a raffle,’’ Ms Chin said.
Linda Moreland and Julie Collins, who have donated their time for the past two events, will provide entertainment on the day.
‘‘We’ll also have 80 of the old-fashioned fine English matching china cups, which everyone really enjoys,’’ Ms Chin said.
She said all proceeds from the day would go back into the cost of keeping the facility in the Goulburn Valley.
The funds would go towards things like emergency material aid for mums, including nappies.
‘‘Sometimes we also have to buy clothes for mums because we just don’t have any,’’ Ms Chin said.
The high tea is on Sunday, May 20, at Shepparton Senior Citizens’ Centre, 132 Welsford St. Tickets for the event are $30 and are available from Ms Chin. Phone 58210826 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Seating is limited and registration is mandatory prior to Friday, May 11.
