Toy library movie success
An East Grampians Health Service Ark Toy and Activity Library annual movie day featuring the film ‘Finding Your Feet’ attracted more than 200 people and raised almost $2000.
Toy library president Kaye Chamings said the afternoon was a wonderful success, both socially and financially.
“I thank the Astor Cinema staff for their support in working with members to organise this annual event, and also the community for its continued support,” she said.
The $1961 from the event will go towards buying outdoor play equipment for the library when it moves into Ararat’s redeveloped Community Health Centre.
EGHS Murray to Moyne Cycle Relay teams, Cranks and Defibrillators, have also nominated the toy library for fundraising for this year’s relay event in April.
The Murray to Moyne teams’ final money-raising event is an Easter egg hunt in Ararat’s Alexandra Gardens at 10am tomorrow. The cost for preschoolers to be involved is $5. Organisers have asked people keen to be involved to meet at a rotunda near the gardens café. “Come along and enjoy this activity with your preschool children – the Easter Bunny will also be making an appearance,” Mrs Chamings said.
