Fashion and fun are the right mix for hospital at Easter

MIXING fashion and fun in an effort to fundraise has been a winning formula for the Gladstone Hospital Auxiliary for close to 40 years.

The group's annual Easter fashion parade and mini cent sale will be held on Wednesday at the Gladstone Bowls Club.

Proceeds from the event are used to buy equipment for the Gladstone Hospital.

Gladstone Hospital Auxiliary secretary Cheryl Bedsted said the group was happy with the ticket sales so far.

"Local businesses have been very generous," she said.

"Come along and have a nice morning out."

Some of the items that will be sought after out of the 100 or so cent sale items include vouchers from Barney Point Butchery and Target.

Styling for the fashion parade has been under way already, with 12 models showcasing looks from Noni B.

Doors open at 9am for a 9.30am start.

Tickets are available at the door and cost $10 per adult or $5 for children.

The price includes morning tea and the opportunity to win prizes.
