Posted on November 21, 2011

Car and motorbike enthusiasts and showed they have the horsepower to dig deep when they supported sick children at the Bundaberg Dyno Day and Show.

A series of raffles were held at the show on Saturday, November 12 and a total of $1000 has been presented to the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation. The major raffle was a quad bike and accessories valued at $700 which was kindly donated by Dirty Boys Toys.

“The money will be used to buy equipment, non-Government funded items, to assist sick children at the Bundaberg Hospital’s paediatric ward,’’ Foundation manager Maria Burnet said.

The Foundation was established in 1999 as the fundraising arm of the Bundaberg Hospital and is now co-ordinating all community donations to Bundaberg Hospital.

“The Foundation relies on public donations, community fundraising activities and sponsorship to continue its work in purchasing medical equipment,’’ Ms Burnet said.

 

Alloway Football Club’s Tony Zielke, Bundaberg Health Services Foundation manager Maria Burnet and Autobarn manager Tom Parry give a thumbs up to the money raised to help sick children.

“The organisers of the show are to be congratulated on their efforts and by donating to the Foundation they also know that their money stays locally to assist local patients.’’

Organsier Tony Zielke said children are the heart and soul of any club.

“While 90% of funds raised from the day assist our Alloway Football Club we wanted to help other local children and make sure the money we donated to charity stayed locally,’’ He said.
