VISITORS to the Wimmera Machinery Field Days can shop for clothing and donate to charity at the same time.
Humanitarian organisation Samaritan’s Purse teamed up with an Edenhope clothing store to raise money for children in third world countries.

Samaritan’s Purse area co-ordinator Ann Rohde said all proceeds from the field days site went toward schools in Cambodia.
“Melindari Fashions at Edenhope has donated all its end of season stock,” she said.
“It’s all of excellent quality, in many different sizes.
“We are hoping to raise lots of money for a good cause.”
On Tuesday morning, Ms Rohde said she had already had a few sales – before she had even finished unpacking the site.
She said she enjoyed coming to the field days each year.
“The field days is full of great supporters,” she said.
“It’s a great opportunity to remind people who we are or introduce the organisation to those who don’t know us.
“It’s really exciting to be back in the Wimmera.
“I hope to meet lots of people while I’m here and sell everything I have.”
