Bingara school girl, Sarah Heaton, who will attend a music workshop in Italy in January was recently presented with a cheque from the directors of Bingara Wattle Arts and Crafts. Sarah will be playing the trumpet at the workshops and concerts in Italy.
On Monday, the Directors of Bingara Wattle were at the hospital, this time, presenting a cheque to the UHA Bingara at the MPS to buy equipment which will be used in Bingara MPS.
Bingara Wattle Arts and Crafts is a non-profit organisation, and money raised by commissions, sale of books from the Maitland Street shop, and donations goes back to the community. The directors decide how the profits are distributed. Earlier this year, Bingara Wattle donated to the Bingara Central School’s robotic project.
Fifty members contribute to the shop, which sells their art and craft items on consignment. The shop takes commission on sales, and these profits are donated to worthy causes in the community.
Director, Gail List told The Gwydir News that the shop had enjoyed good sales over the Orange Festival period.
