Garden party to help kids

DEBBIE Green is passionate about fundraising for Care for Kids and the Woolworths staff member is part of a team who are ready to go above and beyond to support the organisation.

As part of their yearly fundraising efforts, Mrs Green and the Childers Woolworths staff are hosting a Garden Tea Party, with all proceeds going towards sick children at the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane and the Bundaberg Hospital.

Mrs Green said this event would be a first for the region.

"I do a lot of gardening at home and I just thought 'wouldn't it be nice to have a garden party?' I could just visualise my huge garden with people sitting at nice tables on a nice, sunny morning in September enjoying some tea and food," she said.

The party will be held on September 27 at 27551 Bruce Highway, Isis River.

Mrs Green said there would be plenty for people to enjoy on the day.

"It's going to be a very pretty event. We have put a lot of effort into it," she said.

"There will be tea, coffee and a beautiful lunch, along with lucky prizes, a multi-draw prize, cake and plant stalls and a fashion parade."

Tickets to the Garden Tea Party cost $25 per person and can be purchased from the front desk at Childers Woolworths from August 1.

"We are hoping to raise $3000 from this event so get your friends together and come along," Mrs Green said.
