A Nyngan volunteer run charity are forever grateful to a Dubbo law firm for donating $3500 to their cause in helping children in Uganda.
Earlier this month Dubbo solicitor group Austen Brown and Boog raised $3500 at their annual charity will day to Life Charity Focus.
LCF is a community based, non-profit organisation operating in Eastern Uganda in the Budaka district, that aims to help children and their communities be able to live a meaningful and sustainable life.
The charity was established in 2015 by Moses Gorie, a former sponsor child of Jack and Dione Carter from Nyngan, NSW.
Through fundraising and major sponsors, a private school was built by LCF at Budaka in 2016.
One of the LCF’s major fundraiser events is a charity ball held at Nyngan.
It has been held annually for five years, and each year raises thousands of dollars with all money going to LCF.
Due to its growing popularity and sponsor parents hailing from Dubbo, the committee decided to hold the charity ball at the Dubbo Turf Club in October.
The recent LCF ball held earlier this year at Nyngan raised $39,500 with 250 people in attendance.
The money raised went towards more classrooms at the private school, plus boarding houses, a kitchen and many more projects.
LCF ball organiser Dione Carter said she hopes the Dubbo fundraiser can get similar, if not more people in attendance.
Proceeds from the Dubbo charity ball will help finish building at the school.
About 100 children in Uganda are sponsored through LCF and there are approximately 35 sponsor parents throughout the Nyngan and Dubbo community.
The are 510 children at the school in Uganda, Ms Carter said.
