Organiser Lloyd Hogg explains, “The residents and businesses of Tilligerry need congratulating for their overwhelming support, as does the Newcastle Jockey Club.”
“148 people from far and wide turned up.Most were current or former teachers and renewed stories from the ‘good old days’ in the classroom,” he said.
The major prize winners from raffles were, Kevin Hogg from Coolamon ($2000 three nights luxury at Pt. Macquarie),
Stacey Radcliffe from Raymond Terrace ($600 three nights at Tea Gardens), Jeanette Solway, Tanilba Bay ($200 voucher).
Mr Hogg said, “Management from Stewart House were so impressed by the day that they will suggest to other regions in NSW that they use our idea as a template for future fundraisers.”
