Instead of buying gifts for one another this year, members of the club each donated $10 to the appeal.

This teamed with a paintings raffle and 10 per cent of the funds raised at the group’s latest art exhibition totalled $2,572 raised.

The paintings for the raffle were donated by Robin Collier from New South Wales and Pam Teede of the Australind Art Club.

Mrs Teede was recently awarded the Dunsb- orough Lions art award.

Upon hearing about Mr Pollard’s shark attack, the club’s decision to donate to his appeal was an easy one.

“We saw it as needing to go that extra effort,” member Lee Raper said.

“We donate four times a year and this was a really easy choice.”

The group donates funds for each of their four exhibitions a year.
