The major Hepburn Regional Community Cheer Christmas fundraiser, Christmas in July, returns on Wednesday 27 July.

Last year HRCC helped more people than ever before, distributing food hampers, gift vouchers, toys, books and back to school support. This year the charity is hoping to hit their fundraising target of $50,000 and it will mean they can help those in the Daylesford and Hepburn community who need it most.

The upcoming  event, hosted by the Farmers Arms Hotel, includes a two course dinner, auction, entertainment, and plenty of Christmas Cheer, with all proceeds going to HRCC.

Almost 50 businesses in the region have donated goods, services and gift vouchers to be auctioned off on the night including renowned artists Michael Parker (Stony Creek Gallery), Cristina Doyle (Black Gallery) and Bridget Bodenham. Local accommodation providers, hair, beauty and massage spas and some of the area’s top restaurants and wineries including Sault, Kadota and Passing Clouds have donated prizes for the raffle.

You can help by donating goods or services to HRCC’s fundraising auction – contact Wendy Berry (HRCC Chairperson) at

You can make a donation. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
