Help Huntington's Disease Queensland

I have become involved with Huntington's Disease Queensland and am trying to raise funds for this very worthy cause.

Huntington's Disease Awareness Week is to be held this year from September 2nd - 9th

My friend Jaime Colley ( who has Huntington's but no symptoms as yet, but whose mother at aged 50 cannot speak, walk or look after herself because she has Huntington's) and I are trying to raise funds to aid sufferer's, carers, and families of people with Huntington's.

We have planned a Sumptuous High Tea to be held at the Highfields Tavern, Toowoomba on Sunday September 8th from 2pm - 4 pm. To receive an invitation please contact me at, or Jaime Colley at

Tickets are $40 per head - scrumptious goodies, cakes, sandwiches, pastries, tea and coffee are supplied - there will be a lucky door prize, lots of great raffles, and fun auctions will be held too - come prepared to have a lot of laughs! Soft drinks and alcoholic drinks are available for sale at the bar too....

In order to help Jaime and I to pay for this High Tea - although we have been very fortunate to have some very generous people donate their goods and service, there are still some items we have to pay for - I have donated a beautiful crocheted throw rug - approximately a king single bed size - as part of a multi draw raffle -

Prizes in this raffle are:

 1st Prize- $350.00 package or 20% off wedding package gift certificate by Curless Photography  Toowoomba

2nd Prize- $250 Beautiful Blanket (Snuggle Throw) Lavender, Cream, Pale Green by Yvette O’Brien

3rd Prize- $50 gift card from Grand Central Shopping Centre, Toowoomba

Here is a picture of the blanket valued at $250

We are also in need of goods and services to raffle and auction at the High Tea - anything from a gift voucher for Coles to a discount off a Hot Air Balloon Flight ( we are always optimistic!) will be welcome - if you think you can help us, with anything at all, please email me on - I shall be donating quite a few hand made items too - my felted slippers for men and women are in great demand - so there will a couple of pairs of those for sure - maybe even another gorgeous blanket, and a sweater or shawl.......

More on this later....
