Book fair raises $22,000
The recent Plimmerton Rotary Book Fair raised $22,000 for the Life Education Trust and local charities. The fair was held on March 31 and April 1 at the New Zealand Kennel Club in Elsdon. Club spokesperson Wendy Betteridge said they wanted to thank all the people who supported the event. ‘‘Considering the current economic slow-down it was amazing that we exceeded the amount raised last year and we’re very grateful,’’ she said.
