Souper day for Lach­lan Hall

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS - SHAUN McMANUS

THE Lach­lan Com­mu­nity Hall owes a lot to its an­nual soup and sand­wich fundraiser, and this year’s edi­tion is just around the cor­ner.

Soup and Sand­wich Day, which is the ma­jor fundraiser for the up­keep of the hall for the year, will be held next week.

It has been run­ning in its cur­rent form since the 1990s, and or­gan­iser Jenny Smith said money raised at pre­vi­ous events has been put to good use.

“We’ve had the ceil­ing re­done, we’ve had the floor re­done, we’ve had it all re­painted out, our next big thing is the re­var­nish the wood pan­els,” Mrs Smith said.

Soup and Sand­wich Day usu­ally at­tracts be­tween 100 and 120 peo­ple each year, and there have al­ready been a few book­ings for next week’s event.

“There’s a lot of or­gan­i­sa­tions in New Nor­folk and the Lach­lan area that have their own fundrais­ing things, and we all sup­port one an­other,” Mrs Smith said.

“We get a lot of peo­ple from other or­gan­i­sa­tions that come out to us, and we’ve even got peo­ple from Ho­bart that come up [in] big groups ev­ery year.”

As it falls in the mid­dle of win­ter, the soup is al­ways a pop­u­lar op­tion, and there are five va­ri­eties on of­fer this year, as well as sand­wiches, of course, and desserts.

The Soup and Sand­wich Day will be held next Thurs­day, June 21. Tick­ets are $12 per per­son. To book, call Jenny Smith on 6261 1552.
