Matamata Chronicle - - News -

De­spite there be­ing so much on in Mata­mata with Satur­day sport and the Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val, the Mata­mata Se­nior Cit­i­zens’ fundraiser for Kate Diprose was well at­tended, the group’s sec­re­tary Rose York said.

The July 4 event, where they sold do­nated good qual­ity sec­ond­hand goods, as well as bak­ing, jams, pick­les and plants, raised $1008 for the Diprose fam­ily.

The fam­ily have been rais­ing funds through a givealit­tle page to pay for the cost of be­ing with the seven year old while she fights off a re­lapse of leukaemia.
