From what began as an event for ten people, at $10 a head, beginning at 10am, has evolved into an annual high tea bringing more than 50 residents together in Tatura.

For the eighth year, the Tatura Community House held its annual fundraising event to raise money for the programs it runs in the local community.

‘‘The event aims to bring the community together to socialise, chat with one another and enjoy a widespread variety of foods,’’ Tatura Community House board member Bev Roberts said.

‘‘I had people dropping scones and cream puffs off at my house at around 7am.’’

Slices, cakes, sandwiches, scones, fruit and muffins plus much more was enjoyed, topped off by a cup of tea and coffee or two.

At a monster garage sale held in Tatura earlier this year, raffle tickets begun to be sold and today the raffle was drawn.

About 700 tickets were sold, drawn by six-year-old Antony McNamara-De Kleijn.

‘‘Mandy Perkins took out first and second prize, which was a $350 business voucher to spend at local business in town and a $50 pharmacy hamper,’’ Mrs Roberts said

About $1500 was raised from the sale of the raffle tickets plus another $500 from entry into the high tea event.

Mrs Roberts said she wanted to thank everyone who attended and invited them back to the event next year.
