Donate to show fun

PLUSH toy ponies, games, garden equipment and crockery are among the bargains waiting to be snapped up at the Fraser Coast Show Society's garage sale on Saturday.

But more donations are needed to help make the not-for-profit organisation's fund-raising sale a success.

Money raised will be used to cover the costs of entertainment at the Fraser Coast Show, in particular the monster trucks that will be a highlight of the events program.

Fraser Coast Show Society administration officer Jill Foley said donated goods were coming in fast, but more were needed to make the event a truly "gigantic garage sale".

"We have toys, clothes, crockery, plants, whipper snippers - you name it, I think we have it," she said.

To make it easier for people wishing to donate, goods for the sale can be collected by a show society volunteer.

Fraser Coast Show Society executive officer Martine Britton said rather than waiting for financial grants to come in, the organisation had spent the past year raising money for the entertainment budget, with a horse sale, markets, raffles, a bus trip and the Rhythm and Revs car and ute show.

"They have been working really hard as a team to raise funds rather than just relying on grants and sponsorship, both of which are hard to come by," she said.

"This is in aid of providing Fraser Coast with a high quality annual agricultural Show, and this community - that is the Fraser Coast - should get right behind them in their efforts."

Donations can be delivered or collected by calling Jill Foley on 4123 5311.
