Over and above for charity
CENTRAL Highlands Relay for Life has wrapped up for another year and the local community has smashed their fundraising target of $35,000.
Central Highlands Relay for Life Chairperson Lisa Conway said the event was a huge success.
"We had 21 teams, 274 participants and raised $41,352.86,” she said.
"The highest Fundraising award went to Central Highlands Regional Council for the third year in a row. 'There is Always Hope & Roses' were close competitors coming in second and received a new award 'Relay Rookie', to honour their hard work and dedication over the last few months raising awareness and promoting our event.”
She said the highlights of the event were the Team Relay Races, Don't Forget the Lyric Competition, Trivia game and "our moving Candle light ceremony”.
