Leftover funds from a comedy night organised by Dargaville Vets in October last year have been donated to the Dargaville Fire Service.

The evening was originally organised for farmers to enjoy a “light hearted evening of laughs” during a time of low dairy payouts.

It’s the second time Dargaville Vets has run the event.

Joanna Bruin said the night was a community effort and involved a number of local businesses including the fire brigade.

“We raised funds to cover the cost of the evening and what we had left over we wanted to give back” she said.

The vet centre along with the well wishes of other sponsors from the comedy night were happy to see the $2,774.53 go to the Dargaville Fire brigade.

Station Officer Jason Campbell said they were “absolutely stoked with the cheque.”

“We will definitely put the money to good use towards different equipment funds. Because we are all volunteers, there is always a need for new gear and as a result we are always fundraising.”
