Group Events 2011

Oxfam TrailWalker - Friday 1 to Saturday 2 April 2011
The Oxfam TRAILWALKER is a fund raising event for Oxfam where teams of four people aim to complete a 100km course within 48 hours. For 1st Heatherdale this is an opportunity to raise some funds for the Group by providing much needed hot food to the teams of people taking part in the event at one of the check points, including BBQ sausages, hamburgers, and egg and bacon rolls. During the event some participants don't stop, ie, they keep on walking/running through the night; therefore, we aim to provide hot food throughout the night as well. We are catering from 4pm Friday to 9am Saturday morning.

Thank you to those families who have indicated on the attached timetable their availability to help with the BBQ. This is being held at Checkpoint 5 at Graham Colling Reserve, Mt Evelyn (Melway 118H11).

If anyone is able to come along and assist with packing the supplies at the hall after school drop off on Friday morning we’d be grateful. We will then be going straight to Mt Evelyn to set up and prepare lunch for the Oxfam volunteers - once again any assistance appreciated!

All supplies will be on hand, tongs ,trays, gloves, etc. You may like to bring your own apron. Instructions will be explained on arrival.

This is a huge undertaking and a great fundraiser for the benefit all our children so please show your continued support.
Please NOTE: We have 4 vehicle passes.  If people who are on the same shift could car pool that would be great. The people on the 1st shift can get their passes at Boags house (0407 330201).
