Let there be light in Lands­bor­ough

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Our Wimmera -

The Lands­bor­ough com­mu­nity has a new op­por­tu­nity shop where peo­ple can recycle and ac­cess clothes, house­hold items, bric-a-brac, chil­dren’s toys, manch­ester and more.

‘The Light­house’ was opened at Lands­bor­ough Unit­ing Church with a com­mu­nity gath­er­ing. Rev­erend Su­san Pearse said an en­thu­si­as­tic band of peo­ple worked to spring clean, set up and open the out­let.

“Find­ing things we can use or want is a lot of fun and ro­tat­ing goods to where they are most needed is an­other way of car­ing for the world,” she said. Rev Pearse said the open­ing in­volved a spe­cial project to raise money and aware­ness for refugees.

“With a great start, it is hoped ‘The Light­house’ will be open in Lands­bor­ough once a month,” she said.
