YOUTHCARE’S upcoming fundraising event looks set to give Spring time a warm welcome.

The Youthcare Collie Council Dinner and Concert Fundraiser for Chaplaincy takes place on Saturday, September 17 from 6pm at the Margaretta Wilson Centre on Forrest Street. 

The event includes a two-course meal, with guests encouraged to bring their own juice and soft drinks. 

The event will also include music from band Spectrum. 

Youthcare Collie Council secretary Raewyn Jones said the event is run in full support of school chaplains across the Shire of Collie. 

“The chaplains work with the children and young people of the community, for a lot of those young people that actually see the chaplains in school they are a lifesaver,” she said. 

The group is also set to host the Father and Son’s Spit Roast in October and Carols in the Park in December. 

Tickets are available from Youthcare representatives, church pastors throughout the town and Crank ‘n’ Cycles on Steere Street.
