New objective for old scholars
WITH about 40 stalls at this year’s St Hilda’s Old Scholars’ Bazaar fundraiser, organisers are hoping to attract 1000 and raise $20,000.
Committee member Treffina Dowland, who will be involved in the tea house on the day, said it was the Old Scholar’s biggest fundraiser event of the year.
She said the money raised went towards scholarships for students for academic or sporting pursuits.
Ms Dowland said last year’s event raised $15,000 and they hoped to beat it this year.
The bazaar will feature many local artisan products, including vintage bargains, preserves, books, cakes, jewellery, textiles, craft goods and homewares.
The South West’s natural Scrumpy Soap will be available for purchase, hand-crafted from ingredients such as olive oil, organic hemp seed oil, homegrown and spray- free herbs, Australian clays, essential oils and rainwater.
The bazaar will be held on Saturday, May 7, at the St Hilda’s Junior School at the Chidley Campus, McCabe Street, from 10am to 4pm.
Louis Collison (4), with Year 10 student Stella Scott and Bailey Terepai (4), prepare for the market bazaar fundraiser at St Hilda's.
