Lunch wraps up seachange festival

 

THE Prom Coast Seachange Festival came to a close on Sunday.

To finish off the big event, residents and visitors of Foster enjoyed a long lunch, courtesy of the Toora and Foster Community Bank.

The street lunch highlights the delicious foods and wine from the region.

Tables were set up along the main street of Foster for people to enjoy the relaxed outdoor atmosphere.

The 50 cent challenge also took place on Sunday. The goal was 300 metres of 50 cent coins to meet the record, which takes 9180 coins to achieve.

Volunteers placed dots along the long line of coins to mark progress. Around 3581 coins were collected, reaching 120 metres, raising $1790.50 for Prom Country Aged Care.

Children had fun counting the coins and placing them along the long line in the main street during the challenge.

Lots of coins: from left, Mardan’s Jonathan, Amy and Edward Conlan were amazed by how many coins there were in the 50 cent challenge at the Seachange Festival in Foster.
