THE Wallan Ambulance Auxiliary is on track to raising $16,000 in much needed funds.

The group are trying to hit the magical number in order to help the Wallan Ambulance Station purchase a training mannequin which relays real time information about the patient.

The group is hosting a father’s day barbecue on Sunday, August 26 to raise the funds, kicking off from 11am at Pretty Sally Home and Hardware.

Meanwhile, the group’s monthly meetings are now held at Wallan Neighbourhood House on the second Thursday of each month starting from 1pm.

Any person wishing to join our auxiliary or who would like to see what the group is about can contact Tom on 0427 755446.
