Albany Advertiser - - AGENDA - Shan­non Smith

Glenda and Mal­colm Par­sons are hold­ing a car boot sale at the Elleker Gen­eral Store and Tav­ern, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the Al­bany Com­mu­nity Hospice.

Wood­work, met­al­work, craft, plants, house­hold items and special nov­el­ties will be for sale to the public on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28.

Mrs Par­sons said the hospice pro­vided out­stand­ing ser­vices that helped peo­ple in their times of need.

“My brother was in the Al­bany Com­mu­nity Hospice for four weeks be­fore he passed away,” she said.

“The care and help given not only to him but the en­tire fam­ily was in­cred­i­ble and noth­ing was too much trou­ble.

“This is to raise money for an or­gan­i­sa­tion that ben­e­fits the en­tire Al­bany and sur­rounds.”

There will also be a sausage siz­zle and DJ per­for­mance by Rod Na­tion who has gen­er­ously do­nated his time and equip­ment. “Peo­ple can be­come in­volved by book­ing a stall or com­ing along to sup­port the event,” Mrs Par­sons said.

The Al­bany Com­mu­nity Hospice is a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion and has op­er­ated for more than 25 years.

More stall­hold­ers are wel­comed to join and book­ings can be made by con­tact­ing the Elleker Gen­eral Store and Tav­ern on 9844 6367 or by vis­it­ing 1309 Lower Den­mark Road, Elleker.

The car boot sale opens at 8am and the $10 stall fee will be do­nated di­rectly to the hospice.
