SPRING GAR­DEN PARTY

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

THE or­gan­is­ers of the Childers Care for Kids Spring Gar­den Party were pleased with the event held on Septem­ber 27.

This event was the first for the Childers Wool­worths staff and the event man­ager, Deb­bie Green, was de­lighted with the gar­den in full bloom and on show.

At­ten­dance was dis­ap­point­ing with only 35 guests, how­ever the day went well. Guest speaker Julie Green gave an in­spir­ing in-depth speech into the over­all work­ings of how and where the fundrais­ing is spent. Mrs Green also spoke about the help these funds give fam­i­lies with very sick chil­dren. Tanya Allen from Her­vey Bay gave an in­spir­ing speech on how the money is raised by Wool­worths staff. Mrs Allen, a for­mer Wool­worths man­ager, had raised a lot of funds over the years and was fa­mil­iar with char­ity events.

The multi-draw raf­fle was drawn on the day and all win­ners are dis­played at the ser­vice desk at Wool­worths. This raf­fle was made up of do­nated items from lo­cal busi­nesses and the staff wish to thank them all for their gen­eros­ity for sup­port­ing this fundraiser.

There were many prizes given out on the day with best spring hat go­ing to Mavis War­ick and best spring out­fit go­ing to Tahlia Thomas­son.

En­cour­age­ment and en­thu­si­asm had been re­ceived from many com­mu­nity mem­bers, staff and Wool­worths state fundrais­ing man­ager to hold another next year.

Many peo­ple wanted to at­tend but were away be­cause of school hol­i­days.
