Massive support for Our House fundraiser

THE list of sponsors for the Our House charity day at Woodburn Bowling Club recently seemed a mile long.

"There were 42 business sponsors for the event," bowls secretary Barry Cox said.

The little club managed to raise almost $3000, which they happily handed over to fundraising co-ordinator for Our House Rebekka Battista.

"Last year they raised $2000 so this is an amazing increase," she said.

The charity is building a 20-unit accommodation for cancer patients and their families in Lismore.

While grants have paid off the land and building, Our House had to raise $1 million for furniture and fixtures.

"The money raised from Woodburn will go towards buying bar fridges."
