Mallacoota Fundraising Group *

2015 to 2023

Founded by Mariska and Martin Ascher who tirelessly spent most of their time Capturing Beautiful images of Mallacoota and surrounds and producing a Calendar (With those Images) each year which were offered for sale for less than $20.00
All profits from the sale of those Calendars went to the Mallacoota Emergency Services & Wildlife Welfare.

The Mallacoota Fundraising Group are no longer producing Calendars or Operating as a Charitable Organisation.

This website will continue to be presented indefinitely for all to view those beautiful images and as a legacy to Mariska and Martin for their wonderful and tireless work over the past 9 years.

Also to provide you an oppotunity to read the book "The Day Mallacoota Turned Red" which is on-line and FREE to read - The Link is at bottom of this page

The Production, Cordination, Sale and Distribution of this book was organised by Mariska & Martin.

The book was arranged by local Medical Practitioner
"Dr Mubashar H Sherazi"
Written by the People of Mallacoota - It was their Story.

The e_Book was Developed by Karl Rapson.

The Printing of the Calendars and the Hard Copy of the Book was produced by
Excell Printing Group
Pambula, NSW, Australia

Although production of the Calendars has ceased, You Can view some of the images used in previous Calendars

Coordinated by Mariska Ascher * Our Group was a “Not for profit” Entity

Our main source of Fundraising was from the sale of our Yearly Calendars.............


All images for our Calendars were Photographed & Donated by Martin Ascher

Our Web Site during the time we sold our Calendars On-Line was Donated and Sponsored by WestVic Loans  (Cheryl Rapson), who continues to support and bear the costs of presenting this site

Your Contributions
Mariska's Thank You words

Over the last 9 years of sales from our Mallacoota Fundraising Group calendars, Dr Mubashar Sherazi’s book “The day Mallacoota turned red” and the amazing generosity of people locally, throughout Australia and worldwide a total of over …….. $1/2 Million Dollars was raised which has now been donated to the Mallacoota - Ambulance, Fire Brigade, SES, Medical Clinic & Wildlife Welfare.

This money has enabled us, on your behalf, to purchase a new 4WD vehicle for our Fire Brigade, another 4WD for the SES, 10 x defibrillator's, automatic CPR machine, resuscitation mannequins, sleep study machine & complete state of the art communications system just to name a few.

Because of your generosity, Mallacoota is now a much safer place for locals & tourists alike……Thank you!

Unfortunately with age and ailing health both Martin and I are leaving Mallacoota for a short period and taking a long holiday something we never had since we started the Calendars 9 years ago.

The work for the Calendars is far too time consuming and takes a toll on our health. Particularly standing up all day at the Markets.
( Thank you to everyone for your kind words & encouragement together with your support in purchasing the Calendars & the money that you have donated to this worthy cause over the last 9 years. )
Best Wishes to all our Customers and Supporters, Mariska & Martin
