Carlyle Gardens Retirement Village will hold a garage sale and open day on Saturday 8th September, with all proceeds going to rural fundraising campaign, Buy a Bale.
Running from 10am to 2pm in the village community centre, the friendly community event will include a range of stalls and a sausage sizzle.
Buy a Bale supports Queensland’s farmers by supplying fodder and other essential items in areas affected by severe drought, which now includes over half the state.
Village Manager Michael Owens said residents of the Bargara community are keen to make a positive difference to rural communities.
“Many of our residents come from rural areas and so this event means a lot to them,” he said.
“It’s going to be a fantastic day, so come along and join in.”
Residents of the beachside village hold regular fundraisers for local charities – the latest of which raised $645 for Angels Community Group in July.
Everyone is welcome to attend the event at 3 Carlyle Court, Bargara on Saturday 8th September from 10am to 2pm.
