Members gather with a VIEW to buying a bargain

WOMEN love to shop, especially when a hunt for a bargain is involved.

And, recently, members of the Gympie VIEW Club did just that when they organised a bring and buy day.

Program officer Elsie Matthews hosted the event at her home and those attending brought clothing and accessories to swap for the price of a gold coin.

Trying on bits and pieces, choices were made amid much fun and laughter.

Having worked up a thirst, the customary cuppa and something delicious to eat was enjoyed, while admiring "new” purchases and exchanging fashion tips.

They say one man's (or woman's) trash is another man's treasure, but there was way more treasure than trash gathered that day.

Money raised on the day was donated to the Smith Family for its work supporting underprivileged children through their Learning for Life program.

The clothes swap day was just one of the bi-monthly get-togethers and outings enjoyed by the VIEW Club ladies. Program officers Elsie Matthews and Jan Reedman plan varied activities to enjoy, and to make fundraising fun.

If you want to find out more about this vibrant group and its activities, and maybe join members for a morning tea, phone Elsie 54822 955 or president Judy Fischle 54833 532.
