A Swanpool CWA spokesperson said all the prizes were worthy of being first prizes and they were overwhelmed by each generous donation.

“Many of those who attended the cinema to see Shaun the Sheep were young mothers and their children,” the spokesperson said.

“Thank you to everyone who donated yummy afternoon tea and a huge thank you to the cinema staff who generously donated their time and the Cinema’s share of the proceeds.

“All proceeds will be sent to those replacing fencing in Cudgewa and districts.”
