Trivia night raises money for child centre

THE STAFF from Coles Centro Dubbo have presented a cheque of almost $4500 to the Orana Early Intervention Child Centre, following a recent trivia night in Dubbo.

The successful event saw more than 100 people turn out in support of the organisation, which aims to help children with their disabilities and in all facets of their development.

All funds raised will go towards helping the centre, the feeding group and other staffing equipment.

The popular organisation has been running in Dubbo since 1984, and looks after children up to the age of six.

They assist parents with physiotherapy, education and any other aspects of a child's development.

Orana Early Intervention team leader Doreen Peek said the staff were very grateful for the generous donation from Coles.

"All money raised will go towards assisting not only the staff but the children at the Orana Early Intervention centre in various areas of their development," she said.

Coles fresh meat manager Jo Denman said the successful trivia night, held at the Dubbo RSL Memorial Club on October 20, covered a range of topics, with a few auctions being held as well.

"We raised a lot of money at the trivia night but we're proud we were able to help," she said.

"Coles have had a long association with Orana Early Intervention.

"They do such a good thing and we will continue to help with in-store sausage sizzles and donation tins at cash registers."

The staff from Coles thanked the Dubbo RSL Memorial Club, Heels 'n' Keys and the Wellington Redbacks for their support, as well as a long list of businesses from Dubbo and its surrounding areas.
