Singers David Sanders and Christina Kinley set spirits soaring during their musical set at the Hills Relay For Life High Tea at Rydges Norwest Sydney.

It was an afternoon of chatter and champagne and a delicious selection of savoury and sweet treats which raised $4,844 for the Cancer Council.

The October 26 event was organised by Hills Relay For Life committee members Robin George (Crestwood Crew) and Bev Jordan (Team Jordan) and sponsored by Rydges Norwest Sydney.

The quirky tea-cosy exhibition was a real hit with the 125 guests with all 12 tea-cosies, knitted and designed by Hills resident Lizanne Perry, selling on the day.

Special guest was Hills Shire Mayor Michelle Byrne and one of her daughters, four-year-old Alexis who drew the raffle tickets.

All proceeds from the whole event was donated to the Cancer Council.

Bev and Robin thanked Rydges Norwest Sydney for its generous sponsors and also Event Cinemas Castle Hill, McGloins-Supertex and Pine Tea and Coffee Castle Hill for their support.

The High Tea is just one of the fundraising events being held in the lead up to the 19th annual Hills Relay For Life which will be on May 16 at Castle Hill Showground.

Hills Relay For Life volunteers will be wrapping Christmas presents at Castle Towers from a special stand for a gold coin donation from December 7 to December 24. Any volunteers keen to help should contact Ruth Didsbury at [email protected]
