A COMMUNITY fun day will be held this Sunday, August 3 to offer a helping hand to Barry and Nita Hardy.
The fundraiser is being held to generate support for the Hardys, with Barry battling a cancer diagnosis and ongoing chemotherapy.
The day will include live music performances from Dakota Ellis and Red Tape, raffles, a sausage sizzle and cake stalls, as well as face painting and a jumping castle for the kids.
The Hardys have lived in Gloucester for 28 years and have been instrumental in gaining recognition for Aboriginal heritage through projects like the Minimbah Gardens.
Barry and Nita shared the Gloucester Citizen of the Year Australia Day award in 2007.
The day will kick off at the Gloucester Rec Centre at 11am, with the final raffles to be drawn at 2pm.
Donations for the raffles are encouraged and would be greatly appreciated.
A donation box for cash donations will be set up at the Bucketts Way Neighbourhood Group building on Queen St.
