IT wasn’t a day out at the races, but that didn’t stop a group of local women bringing out their fascinators and colourful headpieces for a special high tea fundraiser recently.

More than 60 people attended the Kelmscott Country Women’s Association (CWA) event where they enjoyed delicious food and drink, entertainment from the CWA choir and a parade and competition for the best headpiece and fascinator.

Part proceeds from the high tea were donated to supporting chaplaincy in local schools.

YouthCARE Chaplain Natalie Chiera, who spoke at the event about the important role chaplaincy played in local schools, said the organisation was thankful for the support of CWA.

“Government funding helps cover some of the costs, but we couldn’t do as much as we do without fundraising efforts from local organisations such as the CWA,” she said.

CWA Kelmscott branch president Helen Treloar said it was an important cause close to their heart and that they had held a different chaplaincy fundraising event every year for the last four years.
