Great to see the sup­port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

more than $5000 was raised at the re­cent St Au­gus­tine’s fete raf­fle WE WOULD like to say a huge thank you to the 15 lo­cal busi­nesses who do­nated prizes to the St Au­gus­tine’s Pri­mary School fete last month.

Time and time again, even in the most dif­fi­cult of times, our small com­mu­nity con­trib­utes what they can to sup­port res­i­dents in need, lo­cal char­i­ties and our lo­cal schools.

The do­na­tion of these prizes gen­er­ated over $5000 in raf­fle ticket sales - the high­est amount of sales ever recorded, which will con­trib­ute to the pur­chase of elec­tronic white­boards for the class­rooms and shade sails for the play­ground - keep­ing our kids sun smart all year.

It is in­cred­i­bly heart­warm­ing to see our com­mu­nity come out in force and this gen­eros­ity shows how ded­i­cated to help­ing ea­chother we are.

Thank you.

Com­mu­nity ef­fort:
