April Fri-yay street feast and forage

Take a ride in an ex-military vehicle and help Vietnamese orphans at the Fri-yay Street Feast and Forage.

Visitors will be asked to donate a gold coin to enter, which will go to charity Artists for Orphans Inc.

Founder Roni Wildeboer said the charity was formed to help orphaned, Agent Orange-affected and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam.

“I became aware of the plight the kids affected by Agent Orange because I have been married to a Vietnam Veteran for over 17 years,” she said.

“We have donated $10,000 for sponsorship for young people, $10,000 for prosthetic limbs for bomb victims, installed air conditioning in a ward for seriously ill children at Go Vap Orphanage plus $6000 for medication so they could start and ICU for newborn babies.”

The Mill’s Jane Quinn encouraged the entire community to come to the event.

“I’m hoping Vietnam veterans will come along and tell stories, and chat with the kids about the history of the war,” she said.

The Fri-yay Street Feast and Forage is held the third Friday of each month at the back of The Mill, Bundaroo Street, Bowral: http://themillbowral.com.au/
