Locally made clothing and jewellery, heirloom appraisals and other stalls will be on offer to the Timaru public on Sunday – and it is all for a good cause.

Altrusa Timaru is hosting a “Trinkets and Treasures” event on Sunday, from 10am to 3pm, to raise funds for Timaru Riding for the Disabled.

It will be held in the Timaru South School hall at 44 Queen St.

The 15 stalls will have a range of wares on offer, including books, children’s wear, jewellery, candles, ponchos and handmade artworks.

Appraiser Jeff Elston will also be on site to appraise heirlooms for just $5 per piece.

All funds raised will go back to Timaru Riding for the Disabled, which provides therapeutic riding lessons for Timaru residents with disabilities, during the school term.

The Landsborough Rd-based organisation hosts sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
