CHRISTMAS CHEER: Fun was to be had at the Rockhampton and District Association morning tea earlier this month. Contributed

More than 200 people attended the Rockhampton and District Benefit Association Morning Tea.

All who attended had a happy wonderful time.

Guest Speaker from the Local Ambulance was Lisa Arnold, who spoke about baby mannequins, used for CPR training .

There was a brain teaser competition, a special gifts draw for all those who purchased multi draw tickets.

The main raffle was a full ham, a large hamper and a family plum pudding.

The multi draw raffle and money boards were very popular. The entertainment was local artists Greg Rea and Joe Humphries.

Special donations were given to The Children's Memorial Garden at Neerkol, North and South Side Chaplaincy, Meals on Wheels and The Salvation Army, who were all very grateful.

In total in 2015 The Rockhampton and District Benefit Assn. Inc. have raised and distributed $23,000.

The Local Ambulance will receive $3000 from our last morning tea for this year.

We commence on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at the Frenchville Club - the recipient will be Various Charities and the Colour Theme will be Aqua.

We already have bookings for the New Year.

If any organisation would like to apply for a morning tea, they can contact us by mail to P.O. Box 878 Rockhampton. 4700.

All money raised stays in Rockhampton and District.
