Canberra Quakers recently held a Hat Party to raise funds for Quaker Service Australia. There were all manner of Mad Hatters enjoying an afternoon of drinks and nibbles at a beautiful garden location.
Hats worn included a variety of bonnets, a Ship's captain, Court Jester, a hat filled to the brim with ear-rings, After a short briefing on some of QSA's projects with Aboriginal communities, awards were given for the most Elegant, most Interesting, most Historical and most Simple Hat among others.
The party, which was enjoyed by all, managed to raise over $2,000 which went to Quaker Service Australia. What a tremendous effort! Photos: David and Chris (L) as Captain and Jester, and Stephen (R) with his mathematical hat.
