MONTO’S Quilt­ing Club is show­ing its car­ing spirit.

The group has a yearly fundraiser for can­cer at Ridge­haven Re­tire­ment Com­plex.

The morn­ing tea will take place on Mon­day, May 20, at the Monto Sport­ing Com­plex start­ing 9.30am with a $5 en­try fee.

Brad McI­nally from Monto Cat­tle and Coun­try will be auc­tion­ing items.

Club pres­i­dent Lorna Din­gle said the group had been run­ning the event for about 10 years with all items made and do­nated by the Quil­ters Club.

“A lot of ef­fort is re­quired in quilt­ing, orig­i­nally we ran this just as a can­cer fundraiser but then we in­cluded Ridge­haven as they have some can­cer pa­tients and you nev- er know when you might need to use their ser­vices,” she said.

“We have al­ready do­nated a quilt to BlazeAid which they auc­tioned to raise funds for their work.

“All items to be auc­tioned are on dis­play at the shopfront next to Stitch n Stash.”

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Lorna Din­gle 4167 5130.
