Lotus shines at school fundraiser

CLASSIC cars shone under the winter sun on Saturday as proud owners showed off their wheels to raise funds for the Maryborough Special School.

The school's annual Show and Shine was organised by P&C member David Fraser, who said more than 1000 people came through the gates.

“We raised about $4000, which will go towards building improvements at the school,” he said.

“One of our buses was stolen last year. The buses need to be properly garaged so we don't find ourselves in the same situation again.”

Entertainment at the fundraiser catered for the whole family with a jumping castle and merry-go-round, the car and bike show, raffles and a live band.

“There were about 30 cars and 20 motorbikes on show and the highlight for me was definitely the Lotus,” Mr Fraser said.

“Kids had motorbike rides around the oval and the weather was just brilliant – it was a really good family day.”

Plans are already under way to make next year's event even better.
