Fundraising Update

Regular readers of DNS would know that we’ve been doing reports on how the fundraising for the Byrne family has been going.

The latest is that 11 days ago, Win News done a story on what has been happening and things picked up rapidly for the GoFundMe Fundraiser as the total jumped some $1,435 in two days showing that people in the local area really care about what is happening to people and wishing that things would improve for them.

The fundraiser is now in its last 20% towards its goal of reaching $10,000 and it should get there with time, donations can be made at any time on this link.

The auction that was held between February 8 and 10 raised $560, the auctioned items were a hotel stay and Guns ‘N Roses tickets and from the show reviews the winner must of seen one great show even if it did start late.

The raffle that we reported on earlier this month as under development is now underway and tickets can be purchased at the below locations.

There are 10 draws and a wide range of prizes from Toy Boxes to Wind Chimes so there is potentially something for everyone and the raffle will be drawn on March 3, for more details please see the fundraiser page.

There is also a Cakes, Slices, Biscuits and more sale on Saturday February 25th at the Kiosk from 9am, if you would like to help out or find out more information please visit the event page.
