koha cafe back on the menu

The community came out in droves to support the Koha Cafe fundraiser, held at Wild Thyme in Warburton this weekend.

Cr Samantha Dunn, Suyin Chan of Cafe Koha
and Cr Jeanette McRae, at the Cafe Koha
Fundraiser at Wild Thyme in Warburton.

The fundraiser, organised by Michelle, Kate and Lily, was a great success with organisers reporting a whopping $3,799 raised to help the cafe continue it's operation.

The Yarra Ranges Councillors also contributed to the day, all of us donating funds from our community ward funds, making a total contribution from councillors $1,350. Our Deputy Mayor, Cr Jeanette McRae presented the cheque to Koha Cafe powerhouse, Suyin Chan.

African Dancing was part of the day's entertainment as
part of a terrific line up of local talent to celebrate this
well loved community cafe.

Cafe Koha is a community based project located in Yarra Junction. Anyone can come in and have a meal and pay what they can afford or what they think it's worth. The aim of Cafe Koha is to create community resilience and promote social inclusion. They do a great job and it was clear from the support received on the day, they are a very much loved community enterprise.

Well done to the organisers, you did a great job and have given the cafe much earned breathing space in terms of its operation.
