Meals on Wheels Car Boot Sale

Meals on Wheels jumped on the Garage Sale Trail and is set to host a Car Boot Sale.

“It’s not only a Car Boot Sale we will also have raffles, craft stalls and a variety of treasurers for keen eyes and those preparing for the silly season,” Brendon said.

“As a not-for-profit we rely on donations and fundraising to ensure our service continues.

“All funds raised from site fees, raffle ticket sales and donations will go towards the improvement of our service, the greatly needed kitchen expansion project currently underway and importantly to those needing our service every day.”
