The Ceduna Hospital and Village Auxiliary recently hosted a barbecue tea at Ceduna Foreshore Caravan Park.

The evening helped raise funds for the group and was well supported by community members.

Park managers Marty and Jodie Andrews were present when the group arrived to help and show where to set-up for the evening.

The chefs were Kym Hardy and Ken Maynard, while Rosalie Hardy and Janet Jacobsen provided pancake and quandong sweets for people to enjoy.

Kath Dunn welcomed about 50 guests to the barbecue and fun night, hoping they would enjoy the evening and support the auxiliary.

The barbecue tea, raffle, auction and sale of homemade biscuits raised more than $900.

Sharon Spry from Ceduna Homescene also donated items for the raffle.

Lawrie Ross was the auctioneer and he kept the bidders on their toes.

First prize in the raffle went to Annie Clark from Coffin Bay, who donated half of her winnings back, while the second prize was won by Eingrid Gelten from Keith, who was also celebrating a birthday.

Mr Ross also caused some laughs when he offered some of Cheryl Smart’s clothes for a lowly $1 each.

The evening closed with Cheryl Ross playing her bagpipes.

The auxiliary would like to thank everybody who attended the evening and helped with the setup.
