On a cool and overcast day, organised by the P & C, a group of Homebush Boys High parents and sons manned the Lidcombe Bunning’s BBQ tent and worked on rustling up good old Aussie tucker in the form of a sausage and onion roll to raise money for the school. Enticed by the sweet smell of a snag on the barbie, the P & C raised over $680 for the school. $20 of it was in the form of a donation in lieu of food just for a ride to nearby Olympic Park. Thanks Year 7 dad Keith Nichols who gladly taxied our mystery ‘hitchhiker’ away. We aim to please on the P & C and every penny counts! Thanks to those parents who donated drinks for the stall and thanks to our fundraising ladies who added another $150 into the cash box. Winners of the raffle were Lucy Ward, Damien, William May and Cheryl Miller.
