MARY Spencer has been tirelessly crafting with love all manner of items to sell, with the money going towards dementia research.

This year marks her ninth exhibition and to date she has raised more than $18,000 for her cause.

This year’s exhibition, Tea Cosy and Dog Show, is at Safety Bay Library from June 12 to 14.

She said she enjoyed being creative and helping others.

Her goal is to reach $20,000 this year.
