Queenstown race function a winner


A fun Melbourne Cup function at Queenstown’s The Ballarat Trading Co restaurant/bar doubled as a successful Remarkables Primary fundraiser. Organiser Nicolle Marshall – pictured with her brother Mike Burgess who co-owns The Ballarat – says $1300 was raised last week from sweepstakes, raffles and ticket sales. The money will go towards a slide running off the Frankton school’s sportsfield that the community will also be able to use.
