The Combined Alexandra Foodbanks has received a deposit with a difference — this one is not edible.

Alexandra Lions Club members donated $4200 to the cause this week after hosting a sausage sizzle fundraiser in the New World car park on Saturday.

Although the event was free to the public, donations were welcome.

Club president Barry McCall said every dollar raised was matched by the club by $2.

He said the event, which took place from 11am to 2pm, was such a success they nearly ran out of everything.

‘‘Some people were quite generous. There were $50 donations made.’’
