Killingbeck kids assist victims

GRACE and Angus Killingbeck raised $600 for flood victims of Pakistan at the Lennox market last Sunday.

The two seven-year-old twins organised a cake stall, and about 40 cakes were donated to be sold alongside the Lennox Head Lions Club stall at the monthly market.

They put the call out in last week’s Advocate for support from the community.

The pair raised $500, and received a donation from the Lions for $50, while an anonymous donor brought the total raised to $600.

Mum Sally McPherson said support from the community was wonderful.

They had put the word out to the Lennox Head Public School and Emmanuel Anglican College communities.

She said Grace and Angus were very proud of their efforts.

The money will be donated to the UNICEF effort in flood-ravaged Pakistan.

The children had the idea to raise money for the relief effort after seeing images on television of kids in Pakistan without food or shelter.

The Lions were happy to support the children in their fundraising efforts.
