Shown on the left is a photo of a market stall that Ringwood VIEW Club ran at the end of March. We were offered a space at no cost at a local farmers market, so we took the opportunity to promote VIEW and to fundraise for our Learning for Life students.
Members pooled their bric-a-brac collections, family members helped with setting up and packing up, and 5-6 ladies assisted on the day. It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day and we turned the work into a fun experience.
The opportunity came from one of our guest speakers, who is a Lion’s Club member, which organises the market. They regularly offer a market space to groups who might benefit from the opportunity, and to whom an extra few hundred dollars might make a difference. The club also donated the profits from their market BBQ to us, which really helped with our fundraising.
We are a small club and are hoping to increase our membership but we do find fundraising difficult at times, so this was a fabulous boost to us and a wonderful example of community groups working together to help each other in their respective causes.
Regards, Judy Triffett, President, Ringwood VIEW Club
