Congratulations to Nathanael Scott, 16, of Richmond Christian College, who received the $100 first prize in the Findlay Young Artist Awards for his self-portrait in oil. Six popular choice awards, worth $20, were also handed out. And this year, because of the quality and effort put in by the young artists, St Andrews Fundraising Committee decided to contribute 10 additional Achievement Awards of $10.
The funds are raised through St Andrews Ballina’s annual fete. This year the fete raised more than $4,700, which will purchase a hot/cold picnic box, a digital recorder and syringe driver for palliative care.
