A morning tea for hungry Harley-Davidson owners raises $1000 for Jimboomba State School's eco-friendly playground project

A FUNDRAISING morning tea held for a group of motorcycle riders has raised another $1000 for Jimboomba State School's future eco-friendly playground.

The Harley Davidson Owners Group, known as Hogs, stopped off at the school hall on Sunday for a buffet style morning tea organised by the school's parents and citizens committee.

Over the last three months the committee, students and teachers have raised about $10,000 for the playground through things like bottle donations, disco nights, bingo nights and cookie dough tub sales.

Jimboomba P&C fundraising coordinator Tiffany Collins said their long-term goal was to raise about $70,000.

She said the Hogs called the school to ask if they could host morning tea at the eleventh hour, leaving them little time to prepare things like bacon, eggs, bread rolls and scones.

"They told us they really needed somewhere to stop so we pulled together to prepare a morning tea," she said.

"It was fantastic to have so many people on board.

"Everyone on the P&C committee is really involved (in the project)."

Ms Collins said the students were excited to hear the rumble of more than 90 Harley Davidson motorcycles.

She said the school were well on their way to reaching their 50,000 target for bottle donations and had raised almost $5000 alone through the Queensland Government's Containers for Change program.

The school were considering using 100 per cent recycled materials if the playground came to fruition.
