Lapidary club donates
WARWICK and District Lapidary Club has held its annual Easter rock swap and auction and will donate 30 per cent of the auction proceeds, $545, to Blue Care.
The items for the auction were donated by people from out of town who hold stalls on the grounds at Easter.
This year's auction proceeds broke the group's record
A club spokesperson said the rest of the proceeds would benefit the club for purchase and repair of equipment.
Auctioneer Rod Thomas volunteered his time free, and has done so for the past four years.
The spokesperson said it was a fun auction with a serious fundraising component.
Sid Woodrow has been involved in the rock swap for 42 years and the organiser for 13.
Blue Care is grateful for the donation and intends to use the money to enable direct client care for disadvantaged people in the Warwick area.
