VOLUNTEERS from the Orange Red Cross Shop in Anson Street are busily organising a fund-raiser for next Saturday.

There will be a fashion parade and Orange performer Gabe Middleton will be part of the event which runs from 10am to 3pm.

Volunteers are gathering clothes currently available in the store to be a part of the parade, and the public is invited to be part of the day in-store on the eastern side of Anson Street, between Summer and Kite Streets.

To add to the excitement of the day’s activities, there will be a jewellery making and scarf arranging display, as well as lucky door prizes.

Volunteer Monique Fryer is one of 30 people from Orange who volunteer their time to work in the shop.

“Of course we are always looking for volunteers to come and help us out,” she said.

“And at the moment we would be grateful for any donations of clothes which could be sold in the shop.

“We are working towards getting a donations bin for the Red Cross and we are talking to council to see if that might be possible in somewhere like the Woolworths car park.”

If you would like to find out more about becoming a volunteer at Orange’s Red Cross Shop call in any time and one of the volunteers will be able to guide you in the right direction.

Orange City Council spokesman Allan Reeder confirmed council had received a request from the Red Cross to position a charity collection bin in the car park.

“There are some bins in other car parks around Orange, but as the Woolworths car park is council-owned land we will consider the application and put it to council in due course,” he said.
