The second fundraising raffle for The Ration Shed’s 2019 Reconciliation Fun Run was drawn on Friday … and the winner was a visitor to Cherbourg.

Cassie Nguyen’s name was drawn out live on air by Radio Cherbourg announcer Atahnee Simpson.

She has won a hand-decorated Barambah Pottery vase, valued at $400, by Cherbourg artist Robert “Rocko” Langton.

The Ration Shed’s event co-ordinator, Robyn Hallewell, said the prize would be forwarded to Cassie in Brisbane early in the New Year.

The 2019 Reconciliation Fun Run from Murgon to Cherbourg – which is heading into its sixth year – will be held on May 19, 2019.

Some of the objectives of the Fun Run include promoting reconciliation, building bridges between communities, having fun, getting to know neighbours, raising funds for the Ration Shed Museum, making new friends and getting fit and healthy.

Barambah Pottery pieces are being raffled as part of the fundraising effort for the 2019 run, but The Ration Shed is also looking for sponsors willing to jump on board to help out with the “Running” costs!
