Family fun day
THE fundraiser will take place on October 16 from 10am to 3pm and involves a number of activities, including the books that will be for sale.
Author and illustrator Wendy Binks will make an appearance and there will be games, a sausage sizzle, a cake and lolly stall, and an animal farm and inflatable rides will be a part of the fun of the day.
There will be about 20,000 books for sale, which have been collected or donated to the family.
According to Diabetes Australia, type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system is activated to destroy the cells in the pancreas, which produces insulin.
The condition is not linked to modifiable lifestyle factors, there is no cure and it cannot be prevented.
