Chance to find ‘trea­sure’ while help­ing raise funds for char­ity

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By DAVID HULME

Garage- sale en­thu­si­asts take note – the Ro­tary Club of Mata­mata is hold­ing a mon­ster garage sale out the front of Mata­mata Col­lege this Satur­day to raise funds for char­i­ta­ble projects.

Club di­rec­tor David Parker said there would be a va­ri­ety of items for sale as part of the event, with sell­ing start­ing at 7am.

The club would gladly ac­cept do­na­tions of goods to sell at the garage sale in the next cou­ple of days, he said.

‘‘If any­one has any­thing they wish to do­nate to us, know­ing that the pro­ceeds of this event will go to­wards char­i­ta­ble en­deav­ours that the club un­der­takes, we would be more than happy to ac­cept th­ese,’’ Mr Parker said.

‘‘We have run three garage sales in the past five years and they prove to be very pop­u­lar with the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We are more than happy to ar­range col­lec­tion of any items peo­ple may wish to do­nate prior to the event,’’ he said.

Due to en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns around the dis­posal of non-sold items, Mr Parker said the club could not ac­cept do­na­tions of old televisions or com­puter screens, but any other ‘‘trea­sures’’ would be grate­fully col­lected.

Any­one wish­ing to do­nate goods can con­tact Mr Parker on 888 7188 af­ter hours, or Eric Muckle on 027 477 6033.
