Store’s raffle adding to vital funds
A number of local businesses have banded together to help one that is on a mission to raise vital funds for the I Am Hope organisation. Hide Away Hair are running a raffle to win a prize hamper worth over $600. The money raised from raffle ticket sales, at $5 each, go towards the organisation which aims to fund private care and counselling for young people struggling with mental health. Around 15 local businesses have donated goods to be a part of the hamper. “I feel overwhelmed with the donations and kindness from the other stores involved,” says owner of Hide Away Hair, Amie Jeffries. Some of the stores include Narrativ, Sabor cafe´, Luxe coffee and sweets, The Store Room, What the Food, The Bird Cage and CBR. And the prizes include items such as beauty products, food and coffee vouchers, hair products, keep cups, drink bottles, handmade homeware, candles and more. Amie says they are hoping to raise $1000. Raffle tickets can be purchased in store or via direct debit. The raffle will be drawn on September 20. For more information contact Amie at the salon on 870 2225.
