Woodburn rallies for the Masons
THE Woodburn community will tomorrow rally behind the town's Mason family as it struggles to deal with the loss of two sons in less than a year.
Chase Mason died after a car crash in January this year, followed within the past few months by the passing of his eldest brother, Beau.
Family friend Kathy Broekman has organised a fundraising high tea at Pippys Cafe from 9am to 4pm tomorrow.
The fundraiser will be done to the theme of "stop and smell the roses" and invites people to share some love with family and friends over a cup of tea.
The day will include lucky door prizes and a series of raffles to help raise money for the Masons who, on top of the grief they are suffering, are also having to wear the cost of funerals for the boys.
Food and drink for the day is being donated by Pippys Cafe.
People wanting to help are invited to make a donation towards a raffle or lucky door prize at the cafe or by purchasing morning tea at the cafe.
Alternatively they can donate directly to the Mason Famil Appeal through the Summerland Credit Union BSB 728 728; Acct number 22285673.
