Sale success for Variety

TUGUN resident Maureen Donovan will donate $800 to Variety Queensland after a garage sale last Saturday.

Mrs Donovan said most items were sold on the day and the remainder of items would be donated to the Animal Welfare League of Queensland.

“I went through eight kilograms of sausages at the sausage sizzle,” Mrs Donovan said.

Mrs Donovan’s son Tyrone Donovan died at age eight in 1997 from a brain tumour, inspiring her to open a trust fund in his name with Variety Queensland.

The $800 from the garage sale will go towards the trust to help families with terminally ill children and any funeral arrangements they need to make.

“Thanks must go to the general public for their generosity at the garage sale,” she said.

Mrs Donovan said she would continue her efforts in fundraising for Tyrone’s trust.

“I would like to hold four river cruises in the future, but they are still in the planning stages.”
