This is our major fundraiser for the year and we're wondering if you'd like to help out with a couple of things…..

Bake your Best
The famous and fabulous cake café returns, with espresso
coffee this year! Could you bake us a cake or slice? Last
year's was a huge success with a great range of yummies,
some allergy free, some savoury, all lovely. It's a great
showcase for island cooks!

Second hand stalls: Books, clothing (kids + adults), toys
/ bric a brac:

We're looking for your quality donations for these 3 stalls.
No large furniture items please, just interesting stuff to help
clear your cupboards and raise money for a good cause.
Council clear up is the week before, so keep a bag back for
us rather than put it on the streets….

Your kind donations will be gratefully accepted on the
kindy balcony any day of the week up till Fri 19 Sept.

For more info (and to book your favourite recipe in) call Ruth
Tedder 0430 208 433, or email ruth.tedder@transitioninsitute.org
Offers of help on the day also welcome!
