Just letting everyone know that the Billycart Bonanza is NOT being run in 2019, as some of our key members will be away during this part of the year due to various reasons. Along with this, we have been made aware that many businesses, shop owners and farmers have been affected by the drought in one way or another and we feel it is unfair to ask for donations in this situation.
We are ever grateful for the support so far from the the local businesses who sponsor the event, the volunteers and the community.
The Kyogle Billycart bonanza is a wonderful event / fundraiser for KACE to employ an S.R.E. teacher at Kyogle High and we will be back on board again for 2020 hopefully with a bigger and better Billycart Bonanza, unless there are some unforeseen circumstances to prevent this.
So start building now for 2020!!!
The Kyogle Billycart Bonanza is a community-minded, family-fun event that takes place in September each year in Stratheden Street, Kyogle.
With involvement from various local community organisations, the event aims to bring the Kyogle community together for a fun-filled day plus attract visitors from further afield. There are various race classes to choose from and everyone is encouraged to get inventive, build a cart and enter the race! In addition to the billycart races, there will be market stalls, a jumping castle, pony rides, a Show 'n' Shine and much more!
The event is being organised by Kace Inc (Kyogle Association for Christian Education), an initiative of the Churches of Kyogle. Kace’s primary focus is the provision of quality Christian education at Kyogle High School, through the employment of a qualified scripture teacher. Any proceeds raised from the Billycart Bonanza will be used by Kace to assist in funding the scripture teacher in the high school and Kace will allocate these funds at their discretion. Kace also desires that this event provide an opportunity for other community organisations (such as the Lions Club, Rotary Club and schools) to benefit and therefore any funds raised by these other organisations will be distributed at their own discretion.
This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, including our major sponsor Hurford Hardwood. We wish to extend our sincere thanks to these local businesses for their involvement in the Kyogle Billycart Bonanza.
Come along and join the Kyogle community in some good ol’ fashioned family fun!
