Letter to the Editor - Wednesday, June 11:Our village shines
BOASTING a combined population of 132 adults and 60 children the tiny hamlets of Ulong and Timmsvale have had a very colourful past in the history of Coffs Harbour, and not all of it was to be proud of. However the day of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea this tiny village shone for all to see when a massive $1463 was raised for cancer research.
It saw 11 brave souls lose their locks to help raise more money. This included an elderly grandfather who lost the last of his locks and raised a further $155, three amazing women who showed incredible courage to forgo their beautiful long hair to raise a further $464 for the cause and one very brave lady who is undergoing chemo, who shaved the last of her hair to help raise more money.
