What to Donate

Sunrise Thrift Shop

You will have read in the newsletter that East Timor Sunrise Inc has taken over the running of what used to be the RSPCA Op Shop in the old Price Rite complex at Nightcliff. Last Sunday was the first day of trading. It was amazing. Just over $700.00 was taken. This will provide a more reliable financial base which will ensure we are able to cover the cost of shipping containers to Timor.

If you are able to volunteer your time to help in the Nightcliff Thrift Shop please call Helen and David Roberts on 8983 1082 to have your name added to the roster.  If you don't want to go on the roster but are available to give some time here and there also call Helen and David as they are managing the Thrift Shop.

Have a look at some photos of the Sunrise Thrift Shop.
