Markets to make a difference

Three local ladies are putting on a Market to Make a Difference, with all proceeds to support those who have lost their homes in recent bushfires.

There will be stalls, lucky door prizes, silent auction, competitions and more this Thursday, upstairs at the Forbes Golf and Sportsman's Hotel from 7 to 9pm.

The night is being organised by Ruth Klingner, Kylie Spice and Yvonne Howarth and anyone who has any enquiries about the night is encouraged to contact Ruth on 0438 642 113.

"We would love to invite everyone to come and join us for a fun night," Mrs Klingner said. "Cost to enter is a gold coin donation."

All funds raised on the night will support people who have lost their homes in the fires, with two particular recipients identified: the Nowra Rotary Club (who will pass the funds on to a resident in their area) and an individual who has been brought to the group's attention.

"Nowra Rotary have been very generous in supporting people in and around Forbes during the ongoing drought and we would like to bless people in their area in return," Mrs Klingner said.

They have also identified, through Captain Ray and Di Flint who used to live in Forbes and minister at Northside Chapel, an individual in Womboyne who lost his home and his business and is in need of assistance.

Come and join us for a fun night.
