Thank you very much to all those who contributed to WRAP's fund raising for bushfire relief: the people who bought raffle tickets, the people who donated money, the prize donors, and the volunteers. The generosity of the Westbury region is wonderful.
*** TC is donating the bicycle to the Lions Club Deloraine for inclusion in their bushfire raffle, probably the Easter Event. So the bike will earn more money to help the victims.
Amount raised and donated to The Salvation Army: $2553 ($1905 from ticket sales and $648 from donations).
19 tickets unsold of the 400 printed.
