3000 people at carols raise funds for Jodie's Inspiration

THE 2016 Shopbaby Carols in the Heart has raised $2666.25 for local charity, Jodie's Inspiration.

The carol evening on Sunday at Oakes Oval was attended by more than 3000 people which was an amazing turnout.

Volunteers sell battery-operated candles and each year the proceeds are donated to a different local charity.

"We are so pleased to be able to give these funds to Jodie's Inspiration," Lismore City Council Events Coordinator Leanne Clark said.

"Jodie's Inspiration is an amazing charity that provides support to our local oncology units, and this donation will help continue the work of founder Jodie McRae, who sadly lost her battle with cancer this year.

"Jodie's motto was 'Live Life Large!'

"Her foundation will continue to help others do just that for many years to come.

"We would like to thank all our sponsors including 2016 major sponsor Shopbaby as well as the local community for their generosity of spirit and for making Carols in the Heart a magical night."
