THE PINNACLES' Kathy Steele is getting ready to leave the Clarence Valley and move to Cambodia to work in an orphanage.

However, Kathy first needs to move on everything she cannot take with her, which includes some very special vintage milk cans and a crosscut saw.

"To get rid of everything I'm having an auction at the Squatters Rest museum," Kathy said.

The proceeds raised at the family-friendly day will go to beyondblue.

"I've lived with depression and anxiety all my life," Kathy said.

"I'm not afraid to put it out there anymore."

Although Kathy has lived in the Clarence Valley for 34 years, she has still found the time to travel the world.

"I love multiculturalism," she said.

"I've often had backpackers and travellers stay at my place for woofing [working on organic farms] or just enjoying the area."

Kathy said she wanted to move to Cambodia to help children that often found themselves in depressed situations.

"I see these children living on the street," Kathy said. "They need as much support as possible."

The family-friendly day will also be a chance for those who know Kathy to say goodbye.
