The Rheola Charity Carnival appears to have lost none of its country charm with large crowds flocking to the Easter Monday event.
The exact amount of funds raised for the Dunolly and Inglewood Hospitals, the Rheola Public Hall and Rheola Pioneers’ Park is yet to be officially determined, however the carnival’s committee secretary Ann Leach revealed that $14,859 was taken at the gate with crowds on par to 2016’s event which raised a record amount.
“We had a profit of $30,966 last year and I would like to think that we could be similar this year depending on our expenses,” Mrs Leach said.
“It’s an amazing result when you look at the venue, where there is practically nothing all year but turns to magic for this one day.”
