Kokoda Cola, the real thing

By EMMA CORNFORD

THE KOKODA Track fundraising walk for the Grafton Base Hospital and Grafton Ambulance is gaining momentum as more local businesses get behind the appeal.

Owner of the Shell Tornik Roadhouse at South Grafton, 'Jacko' Durovic, has decided to donate the proceeds from a palette of Coke to the appeal.

"People have been very nice to me and that's a way I can show my appreciation," he said.

"I've also been in hospital ... so I can see how important it is for the hospital to get new equipment."

The cans will be sold for $1 which will go directly to the appeal.

A display of the 'Kokoda Cola' cans will be set up at the roadhouse during the next week.

Meanwhile, auction items are also coming in for the trivia night fundraiser at the Grafton District Services Club on April 21.

A signed, limited edition Prohart print will go under the hammer on the night along with a painting by artist Pam Fysh. To book your table for the trivia night, phone the GDSC on 6642 2066.
