Monash residents broke their own record this year for the highest funds raised for charities. The Christmas fete held on 10 November, which raised $5089.65, to take the grand total for the year just past $10,000.
The turnout was terrific, and the residents managed to sell all the cakes, jams, and majority of the crafts they had on display. The proceeds went to the Pegasus Riding School that provides horse riding and farm activities for people with disabilities. All unsold items were donated to Ronald McDonald House, Canberra Hospital, and other charity groups.
