The Dungog Antiques and Collectables Fair has raised $4100 for Dungog Legacy.
Organiser Jackie Bayne was pleased with the result, but thought the event could have attracted more money if it hadn’t fallen on a wet weekend.
“The amount is a little less than we raised last year, I think if it hadn’t been raining we would have done a lot better,” she said.
The fair saw collectables strewn across 60 tables at the Dungog RSL Club and St Mary’s Hall. It’s the brainchild of Ms Bayne, who comes from a fund-raising family, and she started it after being inspired by a similar event in Broadmeadow.
“It's a good event, I enjoy being part of it and i’ll keep doing it for a few more years before I hand it over to someone else.
“I hope we’ll raise more money next year.”
Ms Bayne first brought her fund-raising ideas to Dungog when she moved there 14 years ago. She enjoys making a difference.
Among her initiatives include auctioning off a cricket bat signed that had been signed by cricketing legend Doug Walters. It made $1000.
