Many people around Kununurra will know Andrea, she's an active Rotarian and our CRC Vice Chairperson. Andrea's community spirit and seemingly neverending energy has her off on a new adventure this year and she needs your help!
Browsing through her facebook feed late last year, our Chairperson, Deb, stumbled upon a post advertising the opportunity of a lifetime and on a whim posted the link to Andrea and Natika, suggesting that the RDFS Outback Adventure 2017 might be a great bonding activity for the three of us to enjoy - hiking part of the NT's 223km Larapinta Trail, while also raising much needed funds for the RFDS.
Andrea was the most enthusiastic and signed up right away! Then she read the fine print! Now Andrea has a target of $4000 to raise for the Royal Flying Doctor Service to secure her spot in the RFDS Outback Adventure 2017. Andrea will be paying her own way to Alice and her registration costs on top of the $4,000 fundraising target.
Most who know Andrea, might also know that she's an avid crocheter, every chance she gets she's crocheting something! At the races, in the tractor, in the trucks waiting for the harvester to load and unload at the Co-op ... and so she has hatched an idea to help her in her fundraising efforts!
To help the RFDS Andrea will be selling her beautifully designed crocheted pieces.
Andrea has been an avid crocheter for many years and has been making these dinky hand towels like grandma used to have for a while now. Andrea will even customise your hand towels to colour coordinate to your requirements. Check out the microfibres, the colourful block colours, kitchen or garden themes or the Aussie icons (premium range) that she will make to your yarn choice. Each hand towel takes Andrea approximately an hour to create, and she has a knack of sourcing the most unique and delightful buttons from many of her adventures across the countryside! There's bound to be something to suit everyone! Hang them up in the kitchen, in the bathroom, or even take them on your next camping trip and hang it off the bull bar of your fourbie!
If you'd like to buy one (or more) of Andrea's hand towels, please send her an email with your requirements! Standard hand towels are just $15 each, the premium Aussie Icon range are just $20.
