Our concert in Mylestom Hall on Sunday 19th November was a sell-out! 

The audience enjoyed great performances by the Sawtello Gospel choir and by our local singer-songwriters Snez and Stewart Peters. During the interval we enjoyed delicious treats made by our resident chefs Ton and Chris.


Ticket sales amounted to $2,400. When we add in sales of raffle tickets, RAR merchandise sales, CD sales and donations, the final figure came to $3,280. That is a great result, and means that we will certainly exceed last year’s record donation of $17,400 to the Asylum Seekers Centre. We will let you know the final figure for 2023 in our January newsletter.

The raffle was drawn during the interval and was won by Gillian Workman, who is one of our longstanding volunteers. Congratulations, Gillian!

A huge thank you to the Sawtello Gospel choir, their Musical Director Andrew Davis, and to Snez and Stewart for their tremendous generosity in performing for us without charge. Thank you also to Lisa Milner for putting the whole show together and to our great team of volunteers.
