A 60 to 70-year-old antique chair, currently being restored by Tatura Men’s Shed members Vince Vincitorio and Leigh Williams, will be auctioned later in the year.January 22, 2014 4:20am
Mr Vincitorio said the chair was generously donated by Tatura resident Kit Blackhall, who said it belonged to her mother.
‘‘Rhonda and I will hold a garden walk with two other local gardens later in the year, where the chair will be raffled,’’ he said.
‘‘All funds raised from the garden walk, along with proceeds of the raffle, will be directed to the ‘Save Victory Hall’ fund.’’
Mr Vincitorio said they hoped to raise a significant amount for the fund, but in the meantime, he and Leigh would continue working on the chair to restore it to its original state.
