The Quota Club of Redcliffe Inc will be hosting a fashion parade fundraiser next month to raise money to purchase new equipment for two local primary schools.

The Changing Seasons Fashion Parade will be held on Saturday, August 13 at 2pm at the Senior Citizens Hall on Oxley Avenue in Redcliffe.

President Avril Kent says money raised from the event will go towards purchasing hearing augmentation systems which will assist children who are deaf or hard of hearing.

“We are hoping to raise enough money to buy two Soundfield Systems that will go to Clontarf Beach State School and Deception Bay State School,” Avril says.

“The systems go into specific classrooms of children who are deaf or hard of hearing to ensure they can hear everything their teacher says.

“Not only does it help the children hear, but it also means the teacher can speak in a normal tone and avoid sore throats at the end of the day.

“We have already supplied the two schools with one system each, but two systems are better than one.

“This is one of the most important projects we are involved in.”

The clothes that will be shown on the runway will be presented by Portofino Fashions, and there will be an option to purchase the outfits afterwards.

Avril is hoping for a big turnout on the day.

“Our group would love for you to come and join us and enjoy a glass of bubbles, a COVID safe afternoon tea and some lovely fashions,” Avril says.

Tickets are $25 and must be purchased by Friday, August 5.
