A special donation has been made to Echuca Regional Health by the Echuca Moama Wedding Expo Committee. Late florist Lynn McDonald was a stalwart of the expo committee.
Representatives from the annual Echuca-Moama Weddings Expo have made a heartfelt donation to Echuca Regional Health’s Make Your Mark campaign.
The Echuca-Moama Weddings Expo committee arranged for a donation to the hospital after one of the expo’s stalwarts, florist Lynn McDonald, died last year.
The committee believed the donation was fitting, given her involvement in the community.
‘‘The expo is not-for-profit, so each year the money we make goes back into the event for the next year,’’ committee member Tracy Luscombe said.
‘‘But given the hospital campaign, we felt a donation to the hospital was fitting.’’
Mrs Luscombe, along with committee member Carol McFarlane, said Mrs McDonald was an inspiration to many exhibitors at the expo.
‘‘She was always encouraging others and helping them out,’’ Mrs Luscombe said.
‘‘She would also set an example through the wonderful displays she created.’’
To further continue the tribute, the expo organisers have arranged for a memorial award to be presented to the best presented site at each year’s expo.
The Echuca-Moama Weddings Expo is on Sunday, from 10.30
