Bunnings Fundraiser Report

Would like to report our success at the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle Fundraising today. 

Firstly, thank you to all who volunteered. Your selflessness and support is greatly appreciated.

Minus the $200 float and $772.60 for the initial purchase of goods/sundries required, TPS profited $1104.90 today.

Due to an error on my behalf, we still have 7 packets of sausages, which will be frozen and used soon, in a thank you BBQ to thank all for the good deeds we have done as a club. Stay tuned.
