OK, bottom line is, thanks to everyone who helped and turned up and had a fine old time, a kick over $1000 was raised for POWer Plants Community Nursery in Braybrook.

Yay!

More than that, it was just fantastic to have a yarn with several old mates and CTS friends – and even better to meet several of the new variety.

Much paella was eaten, raffle tickets were sold, prizes were won.

An unexpected pleasure was helping Raw Materials chef Rob get things prepared in a really hands-on way – Kenny chopped, diced and eventually stirred multiple vegetables and chook while Bennie handled with the chorizo and otherwise did a tip-top job making sure the nibble bowls were topped up throughout the evening.

Many, many thanks to Rob, Andrew and the Raw Materials teams for their fabulous generosity in enabling this event to take place and equal gratitude to all those made it such a winning one.

And ta very much to Nat Stockley for some great pics.
