On Sunday, the Kegworh Autumn F.A.R.E. will return for its eighth consecutive year, promising to be one of the best school community events in Sydney’s Inner West.
Representing Food, Arts, Rides and Entertainment, the F.A.R.E started as a “small, country-style fair” according to Shonna Mulley, a Kegworth parent and one of the F.A.R.E’s organisers this year. But it has now expanded to be one of the biggest local fundraising events.
With more than 3000 attendees each year, the Kegworth Autumn F.A.R.E. offers a multitude of games and entertainment, with special guests Mayor Darcy Byrne and local member Jamie Parker due to make an appearance. Yet-to-be-announced surprise guests have also been billed for the day.
“We tried to design the F.A.R.E so that there’s something for everyone,” said Shonna. “There are some games that are a bit more technological so that’s something for the dads!”
Since 2009, the Kegworth Autumn F.A.R.E. has raised over $215,000 for Leichhardt’s Kegworth Public School, with funds going towards educational resources such as electronic whiteboards, playground equipment, air-conditioning, books and support for the music program.
Featuring kid’s rides, with tickets available for sale on the day, and a petting zoo for the little ones, as well as handmade food from different cuisines, it’s sure to be an affair to remember. (ES)
