Toy li­brary movie suc­cess

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
