The public event will include stalls selling knitted, crocheted and machine-sewn items, cards, homemade jams and sauces, woodwork, crockery, and a wide range of craft items.
All are welcome to attend the event, which begins at 2pm in the Murray Gardens community centre at 36 Mountford Crescent, East Albury.
Murray Gardens resident Marlene Roberts said the event was a great way for residents to use their skills to raise money for a good cause.
“There are so many people in the village who have created the most spectacular needlework, painting, and every other craft you can think of,” Marlene said.
“All of the money made will go the cancer wing at the base hospital.”
Village Manager Chiquita Walsh said residents have been working hard to make a fantastic range of items.
“So much work has gone into the wonderful crafts, and residents have been printing out flyers on their computers to get the word out,” Chiquita said.
Dr. Craig Underhill from Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre will be in attendance on the day to talk about the work carried out by the centre.
There will be also be door prizes and a raffle, and entry to the Gala Day is a gold coin donation.
