Trash and treasure raises money for fire brigade
The Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association raised $5460 at its annual Easter Trash and Treasure Market at Wagstaffe Hall.
The funding will be used as a donation to the local Rural Fire Service for training supplies and support and to pay for new garden beds surrounding the hall.
"Under the watchful eye of Ms Fay Gunther, the hall was awash with many helpers and people delivering goods to sell, with the collection rolling on from Thursday night and all day Friday," said association president, Ms Peta Colebatch.
The doors of the hall opened to eager purchasers from 9am on Easter Saturday.
"Our community provided the trash that became treasure, and our many volunteers cheerfully sorted the goods, arranged them and sold them, and then sorted the leftovers again afterwards.
"Some of the leftovers went to charity, and the rest to the skip but luckily many children enjoyed sifting through the skip outside when it was all over, and to our delight liberated some of the goods from landfill," she said.
Ms Colebatch also thanked Central Coast Council for covering the cost of the skip bin.
