High Tea on the Hastings tops $8000 for Camp Quality

The ninth annual High Tea on the Hastings has raised almost $8000 for Camp Quality.

Organiser Natalie Junge described the level of support and the amount raised as ‘awesome’.

The event attracted 300 people and was held at Rydges Port Macquarie on June 30.

The $7954.30 raised included ticket sales, proceeds from raffles and other fundraising activities on the day.

Since its inception, the High Tea on the Hastings has raised a total of close to $83,000.

Ms Junge said High Tea on the Hastings is a fundraising effort that remembers a good friend and also helps Camp Quality.

"This event remembers our good friend Rachel Flakus, who passed away suddenly nine years ago,” she said.

“We, as a group of friends, decided we wanted to do something in honour of Rachel.

"Camp Quality was an easy choice for us to raise money for.”

Ms Junge thanked all sponsors and supporters for making the event a success.
