Wowan ready for charity auction

DOES your horse have a sore back?

You may want to head to the Commercial Hotel at Wowan for their annual charity auction from 6pm Saturday night.

An equine chiropractic evaluation and adjustment are among a variety of items to go under the hammer to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the Capricornia Helicopter Rescue Service.

Roslyn Childs from the Commercial Hotel said that with support from the local community over the past four years the hotel had raised almost $24,000, which included last year's effort of $9075.

“We are forever grateful of the support offered toward the fund raiser in previous years, and hope this year will be bigger than ever,” Mrs Childs said.

Among the items to be auctioned are pearl earrings, a Bundy Bear picture, John Deere mud flaps, an assortment of tools, push bikes, bales of lucerne and an electric fence energiser.

“Come along and have fun with us, everyone is welcome and who knows what you might go home with? Even if it is only the satisfaction of knowing you helped raise money in support of these services,” she said.
