CORAKI Art Prize was given a welcome boost two weeks ago.

CORAKI Art Prize was given a welcome boost two weeks ago when the Anglican Bishop of Grafton, the Rt Rev Sarah Macneil, visited the area.

Bishop Sarah was in Coraki as part of her 'Centenary Pilgrimage' to commemorate the establishment of the Grafton diocese in 1914.

The theme of her pilgrimage is Gifts to the Community, and the local art competition received a sponsorship of the youth art prize from the Anglican Parish of Mid Richmond.

"The gifts in each place have been joyful expressions of our participation in local community life," Bishop Sarah said.

Melva Thompson, president of the Coraki Art Prize, was on hand to receive the gift.

St John's Church, Evans Head, also gifted money to the Mid Richmond Neighbourhood Centre.
