Ticking all the boxes for Sal on Saturday

Live entertainment – tick.

A relaxing family friendly atmosphere in the spring sunshine – tick.

Full bar facilities – tick.

All for a good cause – absolutely.

The stars will align this Saturday afternoon at Moree Rugby Club as the Live Life Like Sal committee host its family fun day in aid of local cancer fighter Sally Kilner.

And while all funds raised go to helping the Kilner’s cause, the day promises to be a whole of community event catering for everyone.

Committee member Jamelie Dudley-Smith said the afternoon was not only a wonderful way to support the Kilner family, but a great opportunity to enjoy a social, fun day out.

“There is quite a lot going on and we have a fantastic schedule of entertainment to get people in the mood, starting with local performers Jac Lillyman and Stevie Jean, as well as DJ Millsey from Tamworth playing later into the evening,” Mrs Dudley-Smith said.


Juliette Cheetham, Laura-Lee Chaplin, Luke Whan, Andrew Pitman and Jamelie Dudley-Smith with little ones Elsie Chaplin, Kate McDonald and Arthur Poole are all excited for this weekend’s Live Life Like Sal Family Fun Day.

“There’s a great line-up of activities for the little ones, including a dedicated Kids’ Corner, jumping castle and a jaw-dropping fireworks display.”

From 5.30 the event will also feature a highly-coveted auction, with businesses from across the north-west generously donating a range of products and services.

“We have been absolutely blown away by the generosity of the community, which is a wonderful reflection on the affection felt towards Baz and Sal,” Mrs Dudley-Smith said.

Local stock and station agent Antony Glynn will be sure to keep the dollars – and laughs – rolling while an evening barbeque and canteen facilities will keep everyone fed.

Mrs Dudley-Smith encourages everyone from the community looking for a fun day out and equally great night out to head down to the Moree Rugby Club on Saturday.

“Even if you don’t know Sal, grab some friends for a night out or gather some families and get the kids out of the house – it’s sure to be an event for all,” she said.

Tickets to the Live Life Like Sal Family Fun Day are $10 and available at Mark Coulton’s Office, SRF Accountants, La Maison Rose or at the gate on the day.

The event kicks off at 3pm at the Moree Rugby Club until late.
