“Also to the money counters, Orbost FoodWorks, Orbost IGA, River Baker Café and Orbost Bakery for the donations. 
“To the NAB Orbost and the other local businesses who have donation tins as well as the children and and adult volunteers who rattled tins.”
Raffles were conducted by Judy and Bev Farley in the lead-up to the day, with the ladies also helping with the catering and overall organisation on the day.
