The Roebuck Masonic Lodge has raised $1400 for the disabled and special needs children of Broome Senior High School.

The money was generated from a fete-style trash and treasure market at the lodge grounds in Dora Street on Sunday, June 18.

Community members pitched in with $10 donations and set up stalls selling everything from bric-a-brac to homemade cakes and preserves.

The disabled and special needs children set up a stall of their own, with items school parents had donated, along with other treasures made by the youngsters themselves.

A meat tray raffle, donated by Tenderspot in Broome, helped boost the fundraising and several local musicians gave up their time to provide entertainment.
