Support for medical equipment appeal

  • Fundraising
  • Donations
Friday, 03 Feb 2023

We love it when a club offers to help fundraise for us, alongside their own events. Such is the case with the South West Bottle and Collectables Club and its annual show, on this weekend.

Warrnambool’s Wannon Rooms will house fabulous displays of local people’s personal collections (think handbags, old tools, vintage cars and, of course, bottles) and there’ll be terrific items up for sale, too. Outside on the Sunday, there’ll also be a vintage and classic car display. It’ll include the sleek, Robert Baudinette-owned 1972 HQ Holden Premier in this photo.


Entry for adults is $5 tomorrow and a gold coin on Sunday (both days, kids will be free). Speaking of Sunday, there’ll also be an auction. For more info on any of the above you can call club president Ron Cashmore on 0417 037 744.


Meantime, the fundraising component to help out with our medical equipment needs centres on donations being received by the club for our SWH District Nursing Service CoaguChecks Appeal. CoaguCheks save warfarin therapy patients the significant inconvenience of having to leave their homes up to twice a week for essential instant-result blood tests. They’re $1,000 each and we need four. Already, these five local businesses have generously donated the money needed to pay for the first one: Koroit Antiques & Collectibles, Norton Motor Group, Nutrien AG Solutions Ltd, Stephenson’s Kitchen & Joinery Centre, and Tim Rayner Audiology.


We’d also like to thank Brian Willey and Steven Morgan for digging up 100s of Ks of Brian’s potatoes to be sold in 5K/$10 bags at the event. This money will also go towards our CoaguChek Appeal.
