Now it’s easy for you to help us collect donated things for our auction

Our monthly auctions are our major fundraiser – but we’ve reached a point where we need a dedicated vehicle to allow us to collect an ever-increasing amount of large items donated by the local community. (Auction funds underpin all our work, locally and internationally – which you can learn about here.  Also, scroll down this page to find out more about the auction itself).

You can help!  It’s now easy to make a donation to help us raise the funds to purchase a vehicle.  This link will take you to Woolgoolga Rotary’s online donations page at GiveNow, Australia’s only commission-free online donation service.  You will be taken to the Help Us Pick Up! Rotary Auctions Woolgoolga page, where you can donate.

Rotary Auction    – Bargains galore

AUCTION HELPERS PLEASE NOTE: it is important that people helping Rotary at the auctions are aware of the occupational health and safety issues outlined here.

Woolgoolga Rotary Auction of used household goods takes place the 1st Saturday of every month except January. Location is the Rotary shed behind the CWA, next to the RSL club in Beach St (parking available behind the RSL club).Map of Rotary shed for auction flyer

Smaller items are on sale in the shed from 10.30am and larger items are on display. The auction of those larger items begins at 1 pm sharp. In case of heavy rain the auction is held over until the following month (phone 0434 895 611 or 0401 022 951 to check/confirm if travelling to attend).

To donate and deliver goods for auction, call Dick on 6654 1828 or David on 6654 7700 to arrange a convenient time so they can unlock the gates and arrange to store the goods inside the shed).

Rotary can also collect donated items – phone and arrange a time with Dick or David. Come along and buy – there are bargains galore, and funds raised go to worthy causes, mostly within our own community (including to each month’s auction helping organisation). We are also helping to recycle useful goods – a win-win-win for the community. For more insight into the worthy causes, see this list of recent donations.

PLEASE NOTE- we cannot accept clothes, chemicals, housepaint, broken or non-working items , or any unsaleable item.
