Get cre­ative for fundraiser

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Tara Whitsed

The Tatura All Saints Angli­can Church is en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals to get cre­ative ahead of its ‘Fash­ions made from Trash’ fundraiser event next month.

Event or­gan­iser Glenda McLeod said there were a range of items that could be made in­clud­ing cloth­ing, jew­ellery, ac­ces­sories and home­wares.

Ms McLeod said peo­ple were en­cour­aged to cre­ate the items in the lead up to the event where they would get the chance to model their special piece.

‘‘De­sign an out­fit and model it in the pa­rade,’’ Ms McLeod said.

‘‘See what won­der­ful cre­ations you can make out of items you would nor­mally throw away to in­spire the au­di­ence.’’

She said it had been an en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­gram Ms McLeod had taken part in with Lions Vic­to­ria a few years go that prompted her to come up with the idea.

‘‘I did some of this sort of stuff and it had been on my mind for years to do an event like this,’’ she said.

Ms McLeod said the event would work as a gen­eral fundraiser for the church with money raised go­ing to­wards what­ever was needed.

‘‘It’s all about see­ing what you can do with your rub­bish,’’ she said.

The event will be held at the All Saints Angli­can Church in Fran­cis St, Tatura on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16, from 7.30 pm.

The cost is $10 at the door and the pa­rade will be fol­lowed by a light sup­per.

En­tries close on Septem­ber 10.

To sub­mit en­tries, phone Glenda McLeod on 5824 1398 or 0411 298 113.
