Sheila's In The Shed
19 May 2012
Sheila’s In The Shed #3, held in the Gomersal Community Shed, was a great success. The fundraiser, organised enthusiastically by Sharee Schmaal and Marianne Braunack, raised $1,500 for RDA Barossa and Light. Each year the money raised goes to an organisation which is important to a Gomersal Community member. Sally McKenzie of Gomersal is secretary/volunteer for RDA Barossa and Light and gave an enlightening and emotive insight into this wonderful organisation. The major raffle prize was a signed print, “The Approaching Storm”, kindly donated by photographer Dragan Radocaj. There was a challenging match race, with four competitors, and was won convincingly by Petone May. Wonderful food, beverages and lots of dancing contributed to a fabulous event. Thanks to everyone who helped before, during and after the night. See you all next year at Sheila’s In The Shed #4!

Office for Recreation and Sport grant
$19,000 for RDA Barossa & Light
The Office for Recreation and Sport granted $19,000 under its IRIS grants program (Inclusive Recreation, Inclusive Sport) to enable the new RDA Barossa and Light centre purchase an office building and a portable, disability accessible toilet.
RDA standards require a disability accessible toilet at all centres, so securing one for the new B&L centre was imperative. This facility is available for other users, for example, on Pony Club rally and competition days.
The new office building is secure and comfortable, allowing RDA information to be stored and maintained safely onsite, alleviating the need for volunteers to carry confidential paperwork to and from their homes.
Thanks to the Office for Recreation and Sport for making this possible. February 2010
