A fundraiser for Grace Sharp has raised almost $6500, prompting organisers to hail the generosity of Dubbo residents.

Two-year-old Grace is receiving treatment for a rare and aggressive cancer, at Westmead Children’s Hospital.

The fundraising night was organised by Rachel Wykes from the Commercial Hotel and local musician Isaac Compton.

“It was a really good night. The raffles and auctions were really well received. An artwork by local artist Jacinta Haycock and a signed Wallabies jersey were really popular items,” Ms Wykes said.

“We had so many items donations from local people and businesses for the auctions, we couldn’t believe how much came out.”
