St Andrew’s Anglican Church are holding a family-friendly fundraiser on August 17 for their Foodshare program, which provides emergency food parcels to families in need, complete with live tunes and an outdoor market.
Every month, St Andrew’s delivers 150 – 200 parcels to people in need, including single parents and refugees. They rely on donations to keep going, including cereal, eggs, tinned goods and fruit and veg.
Kids are encouraged to attend the fundraiser, which will feature a ball pit and face painters. For the adults, there’s a sweet car boot sale in the rear car park as well as indoor stalls selling a variety of goodies, including candles, soaps and books.
If a sausage sizzle isn’t your thing, there will also be tea and scones for sale, and cupcakes and slices for those with a sweet tooth. Punters can even try their luck in a raffle with a wide range of prizes up for grabs.
St Andrew’s Foodshare Fundraiser will take place on August 17 from 9am to 2pm at 104 Bacchus Marsh Road, Corio. For more info or to set up a market stall, email [email protected].
