THE Rotary Club of Lindisfarne recently held its third trash and treasure in the Lindisfarne Clinic car park. Members of the public were invited to hire a space for the day to sell surplus household items.
Club president Nigel Grey said the initiative had tapped into a local need, with many stallholders participating in all the events which have been held to date. He said the money raised would go to local and overseas causes.
Lindisfarne Rotary is aiming to conduct two trash and treasures a year with the second for 2012 to be held in November. Trash and Treasure convener, Maree Godleman, said that trying to identify a date which did not coincide with major events in the state or the local area was always a challenge.
Both Nigel and Maree were delighted with the day’s events and the money raised for Rotary.
