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."
