Leigh School Fundraiser: 9am to 2pm, rain or shine. Join us for games, goodies, food, fun, raffles, rides, auctions, activities, stalls, slides, music and much more.
The kids will love boogie boarding down the enormous Ice Slide and we’ll keep them entertained with a host of activities, fun-fair styled rides and games.
Our Quick-Fire Raffles are renowned for the freshest fish, oyster, smoked fish & crayfish prizes. There’s an amazing Silent Auction which is very generously supported by local businesses. Bag a bargain at the auction or hunt for treasures at one of our stalls, including bric-a-brac, plants, fruit and veges, books etc.
The onsite cafe and kai options include excellent local food, plus delicious home baking, Hot Cross Buns and great coffee.
