Dig deep for Copmanhurst charity auction

WHEN the Copmanhurst Campdraft Committee wanted to organise a fundraiser, Allan Gough knew he wanted to do something to help local kids.

With the help of local donors and businesses, a charity auction will be held just after the campdraft presentation at the Rest Point Hotel in Copmnanhurst on Saturday November 13 at 3pm.

"We chose to give the money to St Joseph's Cowper Homes because it's a great childrens charity, it's local and its helps out the kids,” Mr Gough said.

"And it's going pretty well so far, but we're calling on local people and businesses to donate more to the cause.”

Already the highlights of a large range of goods is a large outdoor firebox and cooker for the backyard, a compact keg, and an on divers helmett that is attracting a lot of interest.

"But it's not just goods we're after, if you're in a business you can donate services or vouchers as well,” he said.

Items can be dropped into the Rest Point Hotel, can be collected from the Grafton or Copmanhurst Areas.

"Have a look around your house, shop or shed to find any worthwhile items to donate,” Mr Gough said.

"100% of the proceeds go to St Joseph's, and the support would be greatly appreciated.”

For collection of goods in the Grafton area contact Allan Gough on 0429497400 or Ted and Joy Brown at Copmanhurst on 0488 781765.
