Fair gives a lift to sinking islanders

THE struggling people of the island of Tuvalu in the Pacific Ocean are being helped by a caring group of church members in Ipswich.

The Ipswich City Uniting Church will hold a Christmas Fair on Saturday, December 1 from 8am in the church hall where the funds raised will help the islanders who are in most need.

Organiser Rhonnie McAuliffe said craft items, produce and a morning tea would be put on for the public to purchase.

"The island of Tuvalu is out there in the Pacific Ocean and is slowly sinking because of climate change," she said.

"A lot of the young people leave because there is no work and it needs some help. So the Uniting Church is supporting them and raising needed funds for the island."

Activities for children and live music will also feature on the morning.

The Ipswich City Uniting Church is located on the corner of Ellenborough St and Limestone St in Ipswich.
