Fashion funds charity

EIGHTIES clothing was among the large donation pile in Sugarland Shoppingtown’s recent Bag a Bargain campaign, which raised funds for Guide Dogs Queensland.

Shopping centre marketing assistant Katey Young said the promotion, which asked people to donate an unused item of clothing in exchange for a $10 voucher, had received 500 pieces from Bundy residents.

“There were a great deal of donations that still had their tags on, and the general quality of the items donated was high,” Ms Young said.

“People were extremely generous, with many people donating bags full of clothing, handbags, fashion accessories and shoes.”

Guide Dogs Queensland Bundaberg Op Shop volunteer Nerida Hepple said the donations would be sold in the shop and would give a much needed boost to the charity.

She hoped the fundraiser could be repeated next year.

“The donations will help to raise about $2,000,” she said
