“The weather didn’t hamper us at all, the band was able to play outside. Andy O’Donnell provided live music throughout the function and the auction went off really well, Stewart Smith was the auctioneer he did a wonderful job of keeping things moving,” Ms Holmes said.

Can Assist deliver morning teas to business houses in Bega as well as supporting the community by giving $5000 raised by volunteers each month.

Ms Holmes thanked all of the business houses who donated to the auction as well as those who participated.
