Two local residents, Barbara Butt, and Geoff Franz, who have a heart of gold started their charity involvement by putting on breakfast on the beach opposite where they lived on Welsby Parade. Barbara said it was a way of people getting together, having a chat and enjoying each other’s company.

Barbara said, “I would cook breakfast at home and Geoff and I would take it over to the park opposite. It got too much for us to handle and now we meet at (thanks to the owners) Scoopys, have breakfast, raffles chat and lots of fun and all money raised goes to a charity or organization for a good cause.”
In this case to Lions for their flood appeal. Just recently it went to Drought relief. They work closely with World Vision. They now live in the Foley Street retirement Village. Bribie Island President Cheryl Williams and members wish to thank Barbara and Geoff for their generous support and said this money will go to the Lions district Q3 flood appeal and will be distributed where it is needed.
