I know that I have said this before but I have no hesitation in once again praising the members of our local community for their readiness to help in whatever way they can whenever the opportunity presents itself and the continued support for the drought relief appeal is an excellent example.

There has been fundraising events by several local organisations and not the least of those is the one conducted by the Lions Club of Sandstone Point. A total of $3,152 was recently handed over to the Lions Drought Assistance Scheme at the District Convention in Roma recently and a Lions Club of Sandstone Point spokesperson has pointed out that the funds which came from a variety of sources including the regular sausage sizzles (watch that onion) at Bunnings will all be used to help struggling farmers.

The spokesperson said that included in the total raised was a donation of $374 by the Bongaree Neighbourhood Watch and mentioned that special thanks must go to the ladies at the Crafty Shed at Ningi for their wonderful donation of $2,000 towards the appeal. The ladies at the Crafty Shed have also donated “Love Rugs” to the club in the past and I’m told that these have been passed on to the “Lions in Place,” a respite Centre for youth in need.
