With help from family, friends and business donors, Janelle organised an Alice and Mad Hatter’s High Tea in Merriwa to raise money for Camp Quality.

She invited friends to the August 31 ‘Dine at mine’ event in the Addison Park clubrooms and 40 children arrived, dressed up for the theme, with 20 parents.

Her mother Charlynne said at last count they had raised $880 but expected more donations before the end of September.

Street illusionist Dewald ‘Ghupi’ Venter entertained with his magic tricks, a straitjacket escape and balloon animals, and Target Sports Academy organised sport games. Others donated their skills through face-painting, a nail bar and a Zumba mad hatter dance.

‘Lots of friends pitched in to help with donating food, services and cleaning,’ Mrs Reyneke said.
