THE generosity of the Launceston community is being called on to help support those in need.
A New Hope India fundraising dinner will seek to help create an easier life for people struggling overseas.
Dinner co-ordinator Pete Towns said this year’s event was looking light on numbers.
“I travelled to India early January and saw the impact that money raised has made in those areas,” Mr Towns said.
“Building six old-age cottages is on the wish list this year, they only cost $2350 a unit — anything we raise it just goes such a long way.”
He said the dinner would include a two-course fine cuisine meal and dessert option with a cash bar and live entertainment.
“Dress code is traditional Indian or semi-formal,” Mr Towns said.
“There will also be a silent and live auction.”
Tickets for the event are $75 a person, RSVP must be made by Thursday.
Tickets can be bought from Free Life Church at 4 Invermay Road, Inveresk.
The New Hope India fundraising dinner will be held at the Inveresk Tramsheds on March 21 from 6pm. For more information about the charity, go to www.newhope australia.org, or call Peter Towns on 0476784887.
