SPRING GARDEN PARTY
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.
