PATRONS at the Ararat Trash and Treasure Market on Sunday helped raise $1319 for the Rotary Club of Ararat.
Market organiser Debbie Miles-Warrior said it was successful day despite stiff competition for numbers due to multiple other events happening over the long weekend, including a Halls Gap market that drew some regular stall holders away from Ararat.
"We still made some money so that was good," she said.
Rotary member Cameron Whyte said the money will go to projects with the most need.
"(One of) those projects would be the eradication of Malaria," he said.
"If people come to us with a request for money and we take a look, and if it falls within our guidelines we help them but if it doesn't we try and find them someone else."
The only thing that marred the day was the theft of some toilet paper from the Alexandra Hall.
The next Ararat Trash and Treasure Market will take place on April 12 and is held on the second Sunday of every month.
