Boot for bucks carpark sale
Helping the community one car boot at a time
IT’S a chance to bag bargains on second-hand bric-a-brac from a car boot while helping the community.
Caloundra Rotarians have rummaged through their garages and wardrobes to donate far to few items for their first car boot sale.
Now the public also has the opportunity to reduce their clutter, with all funds raised from the $20 site fee to feed through the club’s community projects.
Rotary member and car boot sale organiser James Condon said it was always challenging to fundraise for the club’s dedicated passion for serving communities near and far. “We do great things but it doesn’t happen with money from our back pockets,” he said.
Recently completed projects include an agricultural fish farm in the Philippines and generous donations to St Vincent de Paul and The Board Meeting surf charity.
Currently, Rotary is working on building a medical centre for Shephard’s Arms Children’s Home in the Philippines, as well as funding a new learn-to-swim for disadvantaged kids and building an ‘all abilities park’ on the Sunshine Coast.
Mr Condon said he hoped the car boot sale would be able to rally up a couple of thousand dollars “to continue the work of Rotary”.
“I believe Caloundra is a generous community, so fingers crossed we can come together to help the rest of the community,” he said.
CASH CAR: Rotary Club Caloundra's first car boot sale to raise money for community projects will be held Saturday, June 1 in the Caloundra Salvation Army car park.
