Hunstanton raises £1,500 for Australia
Hunstanton businesses and residents came out in full force on Sunday 26 January to help our mates down under.
Hunstanton Town Hall celebrated Australia Day by holding a special fundraiser organised by Hunstanton resident Peta Steel, who moved to the seaside town from Australia last year.
The day was jam-packed full of activities and stalls such as a raffle, flip flop throwing competition and craft fair.
They raised over £1,500 on the day.
“We had a fantastic day and really great feedback. People who were unable to make it are still dropping off money to donate. They were all so amazingly supportive. I had put up a whole lot of information about the fires and a few stories and for most of the day there were people standing there reading it. People were really interested.
Most people have fed back that there was a really lovely feeling throughout the hall.”
Peta extends her gratitude toward all of the individuals who helped her organise the event, including Hunstanton Town Hall, the Bandstand girls, Trevor and Neil in the kitchen and Carol Marshfairy and Kate Dunbar on the children’s crafts.
She would also like to thank all of the local businesses who contributed to the fundraising.
