Organisers of the Lifeline Fair are hoping to raise more money than last year to maintain the organisation's much-needed 24 hour counselling service.

The annual fair is on this Saturday at Sturt Park and organisers are promising an enjoyable day out for the whole family.

A variety of stalls, food and entertainment including a merry-go-round, balloons and a bouncing castle will be among the attractions.

Bric-a-brac, toys and dolls, books, plants, disposals will be sold as well as soft drinks and refreshments, cakes, donuts, and a barbecue.

The Cameron Pipe Band will also be performing.

Lifeline's fundraising co-ordinator, Trevor Odgers, said the fair is one of the organisation's major fundraisers and he would like to see a large attendance.

"I want people to enjoy themselves ... (it will be) an enjoyable day out for (the) family," Mr Odgers said.

"We have everything ... toys for kids, plants for mum and dad, bric-a-brac for collectors and food and drink will be available."

Mr Odgers said the Y's Men's Club was providing the merry-go-round.

Last year's fair raised about $2,500 according to Mr Odgers, who hopes that amount will be bettered this year.

"The money raised this year will support the 24-hour counselling service," he said.

"The community is always very supportive of lifeline, for which we are very appreciative."
