TWO Mullumbimby High School initiatives were given a financial boost over the weekend when $3000 was raised at this year's Craft Expo.

The money will be split between a safe driver program for Year 11 and 12 students and the purchase of a Special Education Sunshine Variety Bus for the school.

The Craft Expo has been an institution for 15 years, with Margaret Mudge and her daughter, Carolyn Reynolds, heavily involved for the past 11 years.

"The craft expo was a great day with incredible support from the community," said Carolyn.

"In addition to the local businesses that sponsored our craft tables, the committee would also like to thank Margaret Mudge, Kim and Neil Hensen, Gil Lomath, Dav Lillyman, Mark Mathison, Liz Watts and Michelle Begg from Print Rescue in Brunswick Heads."
