New ob­jec­tive for old schol­ars

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
