On 28th September 2017 the trust held a hugely successful auction with Doug Avery as our guest speaker.
The evening started with a BANG as Mike Pero Real Estate announced they were donating $2000.00 to our trust!
This set the tone for the evening and was followed by an emotional but amusing speech by Doug that touched
everyone. After Doug had finished we sold autographed copies of his book "The Resiliant Farmer" and then the
We had been donated some amazing prizes and bidding was fierce! So much so the helicopter
ride and the use of a new Motor home amongst others were kindly doubled, so we were able to sell these twice.
There was a great atmosphere and lots of hilarity amongst the crowd with people cheekily bidding against each other
and even at one stage physically sitting on top of a bidder to stop them bidding against them!!!
All in all, once again, a very enjoyable evening, raising over $34,000.00 for our charity. A big thank you
to our sponsors and all those that supported our cause. This is very much appreciated by the trust members and
all the children in need that are now able to have school shoes or sports shoes.
