The John Hunter Children’s Hospital was the major beneficiary with a cheque for $7,500 being handed over to Dr Kristy McCarthy and Carol Doherty.

Total donations over the years to the hospital are now nearing the $150,000 mark.

On top of this generous donation, local junior sports clubs each received $1500 to assist with the purchase of equipment.

They were, Tilligerry Scouts; Stingray Swimming Club; Little Athletics; Mallabula Panthers JRLFC and the Junior Football (soccer) Club.

With 99% of rural NSW in the grip of the worst drought this century, the proceeds of a raffle on the night together with a cash injection from Motorama’s funds, saw $820 raised for the local Lions Club’s ‘Need for Feed’ initiative.

Cash donations or non perishable food and personal care items for ‘Need to Feed’ can be dropped off at either Club Lemon Tree or Tilligerry RSL.
