BUPA Echuca’s agricultural show day has turned out to be a great success and much needed funds for Alzheimers Australia were raised.

There were activities for the whole family to enjoy with art displays, agriculture exhibits, jumping castles and plenty of food to be eaten.

Bupa general manager Kathryn Eyre said the aim of the day was to connect the community to the Bupa Aged Care facility.

“It’s about bringing people in and involving the community and the people here, so it really good to see so many people out here,” she said.

“From little things, big things grow.’’

Kath Quinn, the main organiser behind the event, said that this year Bupa Echuca wanted to do something a bit different to raise money for Alzheimers Australia and the idea for the agriculture show was born.

“The day gave everyone something to do as most people here have farming backgrounds,” she said.

“We didn’t think that it would be this big.”

For an event created by the desire to do something different, the overall feedback from the day was exceptional.
