Dunedin Host Lions Club sent out 6000 leaflets to Dunedin homes asking for second-hand records, CDs, DVDs, musical instruments and other music-related items.

Organiser and Lions Club member Jan Ravenwood said the garage sale, which raised money for the Chair in Neurosurgery Campaign, had been so successful the group would likely repeat it next year.

Mrs Ravenwood said the sale was particularly popular with record collectors, some of whom were waiting outside the hall an hour before it started.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
