The beautiful quilt being raffled as a fundraiser for Rotary Lodge has been very successful with $4424 raised.
The winner of the $3030 quilt titled Irish Melody, and donated by the Bundaberg Quilters, was ticket number 1581 Bruce Walker from Gin Gin.
The Bundaberg Health Services Foundation would like to congratulate all those in the North Burnett and Bundaberg region who sold and bought tickets and contributed to this successful fundraiser.
These amounts will be added to the individual town’s tally in the 2012 Naming Rights Challenge.
Money will be used to assist in the running expenses of the Lodge, at 116 Woongarra Street. The Lodge is a low-cost accommodation option for patients and carers who need somewhere to stay while receiving treatment at any of the Bundaberg Hospitals.
“We had hoped to raise close to $4000 and it has gone beyond that which is just fantastic and will help many people who have called the Lodge their home during a very stressful medical time.’’
