A Red Nose Charity Gala Ball held at Colac RSL on 17 June has raised more than $17,000 for Red Nose.
Colac resident Lynette Robertson organised the event to give back to Red Nose, which supported her over a decade ago after the death of her fourth child, Abbey, during her 25th week of pregnancy.
Lynette volunteers for Red Nose as a Parent Supporter, a role in which bereaved parents use their experience to provide support to other bereaved parents and family members.
The Charity Gala Ball raised funds through activities including raffles and auctions.
Thank you to Lynette and to all of the local community and many volunteers who supported the event.
