Taree Quota Club members will change their traditional pink colours to a shade of purple this week as part of their awareness campaign for epilepsy. 

Starting on Tuesday, March 26, club members will be out and about promoting the cause while selling raffle tickets and merchandise.

Starting on the 26th, the club will be at Taree Central before attending Wingham Newsagency, Centrepoint Arcade, Wingham Plaza and Taree Central again.

All proceeds will go to Epilepsy Action Australia.

A colouring in competition will also be held for children. Entries are available on Purple Day (March 26) at Taree Central and can be returned when the group holds the stall later in the week.

It will be a treat for fashionistas at the Manning Regional Art Gallery on Saturday, April 6 as the club will host a fashion parade.

Starting at 1.30pm, attendees will see a showcase of the autumn and winter collection from Margo's Boutique.

They are available from Margo's Boutique in Centrepoint Arcade or Taree Quota Club president Nancy Boyling on 65535652 or 0407585526.

Prizes up for grabs will be a patchwork quilt, a basket filled with Easter eggs and a set of pearl earrings.
