A great result from the jumble/garage sale which was held at the Upper Lansdowne Hall last weekend.
The hall committee was able to help families who were victims of the fires, plus a big thanks to everyone who came along and donated and helped raise more than $2800.
There are still heaps of items that they didn't get a chance to unpack, so the plan is to run another sale on the day of the Upper Lansdowne Christmas Party on Saturday, December 7. Also, there's a good collection of winter clothes that they will hold back for a sale when the weather becomes cooler.
The next concert at the Upper Lansdowne Hall will be Elephant Sessions on Saturday, January 4, 2020.
They're coming to Upper Lansdowne straight after playing big shows at the Woodford Festival. They've also played at Bluesfest and Glastonbury, so don't miss your chance to see them locally.
There will not be any support as the band will perform two sets. If you want to check them out you can by going to their page here
As usual there will be tasty homemade snacks, tea, coffee and cake available.
