St Dunstan’s had been preparing for the first Saturday in May for some time. It is an annual event. 

We had the stalls organised, cakes baked, preserves preserved, crafters crafted, the animal farm and our Kindergarten were providing the children’s activities. We were ready to go. 

The day dawned, chilly, but “May the fourth” was truly with us. 

We had requested donations of non-perishable foods and toiletries to support our local wellbeing agency, Camcare. Visitors responded wholeheartedly.

David Cooke, Camcare senior manager, was thrilled to take away 20 bags of donations. Boroondara Mayor, Councillor Lisa Hollingsworth, a great supporter of St Dunstan’s, also popped in to see us and have a chat with the community.  

We had such a good day. A great success for community, collaboration, conversation and connection. 

We may not have had a visit from Obi-Wan Kenobi but having a former diocesan registrar and chancellor on the sausage sizzle was pretty up there. The force was definitely with us!
