Dear News of the Area,
A great Festival for the Koala Group!
The crowd in the morning particularly, was fantastic. We had lots of good discussions about koalas and koala food trees and plants in general.
Virtually everyone who took a Parramattensis koala food tree or a native plant made a donation or bought raffle tickets, or BOTH.
We would like to thank them all for their help in saving our local endangered koala population.
By the end of the day we had given away everything. That’s right, there was nothing left! This was just what we had hoped for.
The total for the five cent coin donation drive was $569.25. The winner of a $50 voucher to spend at the Australian Koala Foundation online shop was Helen Lindsay who guessed $566.60. Our thanks go to the Holiday Coast Credit Union who kindly allowed us to place our donation jar in their office in Tea Gardens.
