Proceeds will go to Emma Simpson’s upcoming journey to Russia where she will receive potentially life-saving multiple sclerosis stem cell treatment.
The morning kicked off with a two-lap run and one-lap walk of the Finley Lake, with mums, dads, kids, dogs and people in wheelchairs all participating in an effort to raise funds for Emma.

The Finley Rotary Club provided a merry-go-round and the Berrigan Lions Club set up a jumping castle.
There was also a fantastic raffle that comprised a trailer of gardening equipment, which will be drawn at the trivia night on August 30.
