Garage Sale Results

Once again a great big thank you to everyone who supported the sale. Without the steady stream of donations from the community and sales we would not be able to carry out the projects much needed in East Timor.

"We were really pleased with the results. We are always astounded by the number of items we sell and what they translate into much needed cash. It is a win for the environment as we are re-using the precious donations. Our customers buy terrific bargains and the women and children benefit directly from our community's generosity." said Libby Sayers who hosts the sale at her home in Wentworth Falls.

"It's good to have a little break. We can collect donations again after the 1st April for our next sale scheduled for Saturday 6th May." said Libby.

For more information you can call Libby on 4757 3415 or Suzie on 4784 1718.
