In another great example of reusing old cardboard boxes comes the Dungog Shire Relay for Life Box Car Derby.

The fundraising event for the Cancer Council, Dungog Relay for Life, will be held at Barnes Oval, Dungog on Saturday March 30 and Sunday March 31.

It is an overnight event this year with plenty of fun for families on the Saturday.

This includes the box car derby with the little participants  to receive a participation award.

Businesses across the shire are invited to sponsor a car with their logo - and find a little driver to compete.

The day before the relay, on Friday March 29 is Purple and Yellow day where businesses compete for the best dressed store to promote the relay and raise money. Businesses will soon receive more information.

The 2019 theme is “Dungog’s Biggest Sleepover – a night under the stars" .

For more information or to purchase relay shirts phone Lyn on 0402324164.

The Relay for Life stall will be outside IGA in Dowling Street Dungog on Saturday,  March 23 from 8am to 12pm.
