WILLAURA - The Willaura Quilters' Group is made up of skilful and some more inexperienced sewers.

However one thing they all have in common is an enthusiasm to explore just what can be achieved through a group quilting exercise.

Each year they tackle a different project, and raffle the final project to support a community cause.

This year, it was easy to choose who they were going to support, as Willaura boy Jacob Warrior-Day, who suffers from cerebral palsy, is in desperate need of a wheelchair.

Jacob is only four, but as he has outgrown prams and it just isn't possible to carry him every where, he is beginning to miss out on opportunities such as kinder excursions. This will just continue as he moves on with his education

A custom built wheelchair is around $8000, and for just $2 a ticket, the winner will take ownership of a lovely hand crafted and embroidered quilt, interspersed with beautiful animal and insect motifs.

Tickets are available at the 'Country Miscellaneous' shop, which is in Barkly Street in Ararat opposite the old post office building.

People will need to hurry to get their tickets, as the winning one will be chosen on the last day of school term, June 27.
