SNAPSHOT: Hats off - Winning entrants from Lorne and Prestonfield primary schools

Winning entrants from Lorne and Prestonfield primary schools model their own specially designed internationally themed hats at the Suruchi Too restaurant in Edinburgh last Wednesday. They were there to launch WRVS' fourth Mad Hatter's fundraising week, which runs until Sunday. The special week uses parties held across the UK to raise money for local WRVS projects, which provide carers and supply well-balanced meals to isolated and vulnerable older people. Saadia Usmani, WRVS co-ordinator for the International Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Edinburgh, said: "Last year, 200 parties raised more than £10,000. We are aiming to double that this year." Guests paid a £2 entrance fee to gorge on snacks from China, France, India, Morocco and Scotland.
