Former local Nicole Rowsell has been volunteering for two years at the Mercy International school and orphanage for children in crisis and at risk in Thailand.

Nicole is a preschool teacher and her skill and expertise in child development is really needed in the school.

However, as she is volunteering, her living expenses are not covered. She is  being supported by the OneLife church in Taree.

Nicole’s mother, Coralie and friend Chris Gibbons are having a garage sale at 7 Hutchinson Street, Tinonee on November 25 to help support Nicole’s work.

This garage sale will have quality pieces for sale including Carlton Ware, Staffordshire, Bendigo Pottery and others.

Coralie and Chris would like anyone who is able to fill a box with anything that they don't need that is in good condition to bring it to 7 Hutchinson St Tinonee, so that they can include these in the garage sale and have plenty of items for people to buy.

In particular, they would like to see all those people who know Coralie and Nicole and want to support her and the children, come buying the bargains at the garage sale.

All the money raised will go to supporting the good work that is being done by Mercy International in Thailand.
