Artist raises money for eye care
A Umina artist will sell arts and crafts to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation.
Ms Lorraine Van Epen will hold a stall at the Ettalong Flea Markets on December 14 to support the Foundation.
Ms Van Epen has been making pieces throughout the year in preparation for the sale and will be passing on proceeds to support the Foundation's work in providing eye care for those in need in over 20 countries.
She said a person's sight could be saved for $25.
"It's great that they work in our own indigenous community," Ms Van Epen said.
Funds raised will go towards the Foundation's work in training and empowering eye doctors and nurses to create sustainable communities.
