ALICE is swapping Wonderland for Quirindi this weekend, in a celebration of mad hats and high tea.
A Mad Hatters Tea Party has been organised by the Friends of Quirindi Children with Special Needs, featuring lunch, a fashion parade, stalls and children’s activities.
All the money raised – a whopping $6500 was distributed last year – will go to the town’s four schools: St Joseph’s Primary, Quirindi Public School, Quirindi High School and Quirindi Preschool.
One of the organisers, Lorraine Reilly, said it was important to help fund classes for children with autism or were disabled in some way.
“Those children will always need to be in a class where they need special attention,” she said.
The tea party is at 14 Stanley Cr, Quirindi, between 2pm and 5pm.
Kid will be entertained with face- painting, cake-making, a photo booth, dancing, balloons animals, and, of course, a rabbit hole.
“It’s just a great idea that’s grown and we have so much happening, so there won’t be a dull moment,” Mrs Reilly said.
