COLLECTING and sorting goods for sale has been keeping members of Mt Eliza Rotary Club busy for weeks.

The culmination of their efforts to raise money for community projects comes this Saturday (8 April) with the club’s annual garage sale.

It will be the seventh year the club has sold goods donated by households from across the Mornington Peninsula and some Melbourne suburbs.

The first part of the operation involved collecting the donated goods and then sorting and storing.

Items come from families moving house, down-sizing or parting with possessions they no longer require.

Categories of goods include artworks, books, bric-a-brac, kitchenware, tools, toys and games, sporting equipment, light furniture, clothes, plants and gardening implements.

“There will be thousands of items at bargain prices and I want to stress that all profits from this event will go direct to Rotary supported community projects-many in the youth area,” Mt Eliza Rotary president George Ann Sullivan said.

The garage sale runs 8am-3pm Saturday 8 April at Peninsula Grammar (formerly The Peninsula School), Wooralla Drive, Mt Eliza. Free entry.
