Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary volunteers and local community members united for the hospital’s annual fundraising fete on 25 May.

The annual fundraising event raised funds for Kilcoy Hospital patients, staff and family members through a prize raffle and market stall sales.

Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary vice president Denise Modistach said it was amazing to witness the incredible number of local stallholders raising their hand to support the hospital.

“The community do an amazing job,” she said.

“All you’ve got to do is put the call out on Facebook that we need a hand and volunteers for the stalls, and they’ll come in droves.

“We’ve got five of our own stalls here.

“Our bric a brac stall has all the items on display donated by local people.”

Popular stalls included the auxiliary’s bake stall, with biscuits, sweets, jams, and relish to savour.

Kilcoy State High School students helped in the kitchen, baking goods for various stall holders.

The prize raffle included a pamper pack, quilts and a wine cooler donated by local Kilcoy businesses and people.
