Easter Hat Parade

Here at our apartments we have a coffee morning in the Residents Lounge every Monday morning.  At the Easter Monday coffee morning we always have an Easter Bonnet Parade where we all wear the hats we have made or decorated.  Any money left over from our payments through the year for our coffee's we buy bits from the charity shop's then we bid on them for a bit of fun, we then donate the bid money to a Charity of our choice.
