The organisers of the Lismore Flood Appeal event held last Sunday at Club Old Bar are over the moon at the support received. The community really came together to make the gala fundraising day a success.
The children's activity area was well patronised with the jumping castle doing great business as was the face painting, hair colouring, tattoo stickers, and colouring-in contest, followed by the Easter egg hunt.
Hundreds of people came throughout the day to give their support for the auction, the raffles, the sale table and also donated money. Everything auctioned, raffled and sold at the club was donated, either from individuals as well as businesses from Old Bar, Taree, Wauchope and Port Macquarie.
Volunteers gave their time for children's activities, selling raffle tickets, helping with the auction, sale table, barefoot bowls and mini golf. Old Bar Men's Shed and Old Bar Lions Club once again were there for their community.
Thank you to Club Old Bar as none of the above would have been possible without their 100 per cent commitment to the flood appeal. The financial results in regards to the gala day will be advised when tallied up.
In addition, enough donations for five trailer loads of requested goods have been donated.
