It was a fresh but sunny day at the Emma Simpson Family Fun Day on Saturday, which raised $2000.
At least 150 people attended the day, which was run by the Finley Lions Club and the Emma Simpson Fundraising Group.
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.
Finley Lions Club set up its van, selling tea and coffee and a delicious sausage sizzle.
There were numerous stalls stretched along the grass including cupcake decorating, hair braiding, facepainting, plaster painting, a lolly jar guess and an exciting yabby race which all created smiles among the abundance of children.
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.
Later in the day, there was a catch and release fishing competition and there were even tubs of worms available for sale.
