Craft Ladies raise thousand for charities

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

A feast, a band playing carols, Santa hats, Christmas stockings, and lots of laughter was evident at the Living Choice Kawana Island Christmas Craft Fair on Friday 19 November.

Sixteen superstars make up the Craft Group and over the last year, they have spent a lot of time in their craft area preparing gifts for sale at the annual Christmas Craft Fair.

All proceeds from the fair have been divided two-ways: $2,000 donated to Buddina State School, and $2,000 donated to St Vincent de Paul.

Looking at their Tally Board, the craft group has now donated over $17,000 to local schools, charity organisations, and flood and drought relief. And this doesn’t include the continuous donations of knitted goods, quilts and food to the Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul.

Of special note, Living Choice Twin Waters also has a Craft Group. Twenty superstars had their own Christmas Fair on Monday 15th November and raised $2,134. From the proceeds of the fair and their savings, donations were divided three-ways: $1,000 to Mudjimba Surf Life Saving Club, $1,000 to Katie Rose Cottage Hospice, and $1,000 to Bloomhill Cancer Care.

The Twin Waters superstars have made some very special outfits over the years too – they’ve made jumpers for Phillip Island Fairy penguins and Central Queensland lambs, knitted beanies for premature babies, and bigger ones for those experiencing homelessness.

Well done, Superstars!
