Residents of Aveo The Parks rallied to raise funds for the Ravenshoe disaster victims with a fundraising morning tea held at the village on July 11. The morning tea consisted of raffles and donations which raised a whopping $4,000, as residents dug deep to donate cash and prizes. Local businesses eagerly jumped on board, with women’s clothing store W.Laine presenting a fashion parade at the morning tea, as well as donating a $100 voucher as a major prize. An array of other local businesses and individuals selflessly made donations for more than 50 prizes. The events success was a testament to the strong community spirit within the village, and serves as the single largest fundraising event the village has had.
