Working very hard in the lead up to the big day, Sarah’s fundraising efforts impressed everyone here at Westlawn in Grafton. And while we all expected her to raise a lot of money, we were still shocked at Sarah’s final total of a whopping $4,210.
Sarah told the Daily Examiner that: “It’s a very good cause for cancer and research into developing why you get cancer and all of that”.
“I put tins out in all the work places and went around town and promoted it on my Facebook page.”
My Life Program manager Dirdre Jones said it was wonderful how involved the community had been in the fundraiser.
“Caringa decided to hold this just to try and include the whole community,” she told the Daily Examiner.
“The amount of money raised has just been amazing and I think it’s actually been a lot bigger than we expected.”
All of us at Westlawn are very proud of Sarah and her friends from the My Life program on their awesome fundraising effort!
