Garage sale helps bring in fund­ing for church

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

THE Unit­ing Church’s garage sale on Satur­day has been hailed a great suc­cess, with thou­sands of dol­lars raised to sup­port the min­istry.

The event was held from 8am-1pm on the church grounds, and Rev­erend Adam Tip­ple was chuffed with how the event un­folded.

“It went very well. It was def­i­nitely one of the more suc­cess­ful ones we’ve ever had,” he said.

“It was very busy so we’re very happy.”

The com­bined garage sale and mar­ket day fea­tured plants, trin­kets and other goods, as well as a range of ex­cep­tional food.

The day man­aged to raise more than ex­pected, with Rev­erend Tip­ple say­ing the money would be put to good use.

“We raised $6000, which is a re­ally good re­sult. The money goes into our gen­eral fund­ing area.

“It sup­ports the min­istry here and the Unit­ing Church. It sup­ports ev­ery­thing that we do.”

The church has no more com­mu­nity events planned for the re­main­der of 2017 at this stage, but will host fur­ther events in 2018.
