SHOP­PING FOR GOOD CAUSE IS THE BEST

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - JANE AR­MIT­STEAD

NOTH­ING beats a big spring clean, es­pe­cially when it’s for a good cause.

Dan­cenorth’s an­nual fundraiser Spring Fling at­tracted hun­dreds of keen shop­pers over the week­end as they picked up bar­gains on de­signer la­bels.

Dan­cenorth oper­a­tions man­ager Karin Palmer said the most sought- af­ter pieces were from Aus­tralian and Euro­pean brands in­clud­ing Mis­soni and Alis­tair Trung.

“There were some re­ally edgy clothes that just walked out the door,” Ms Palmer said.

“We got ab­so­lutely smashed on Fri­day morn­ing with peo­ple rac­ing in to get the best items first. They were all af­ter a bar­gain and some­thing nice that they wouldn’t nor­mally be able to af­ford.”

Ms Palmer said women brought in suit­cases full of clothes to sell at the fourth an­nual event. Half of the money raised goes to the clothes- own­ers and the rest is do­nated to Dan­cenorth’s com­mu­nity ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram.
