RFDS flying high with support
The Royal Flying Doctor Service Near and Far Volunteer Auxiliary, serving a wide region of Northern Queensland, was the beneficiary of a wonderful donation of $500 from the Atherton Lioness Club on Sunday, October 18.
Lioness Clubs have been doing community fundraising for many years and as they are now unfortunately being disbanded, have decided to donate their funds to other worthy community fundraising agencies in the North.
Fundraising for the RFDS has been limited to the collection tins widely dispersed throughout North Queensland during the COVID pandemic so this donation has come at an especially vital time for the organisation and is greatly appreciated, said Near and Far President, Mrs Brenda Agius.
Fortunately, with the easing of restrictions, the Auxiliary expects to be back into full fundraising mode operating a stall at the upcoming Jacaranda Festival in Herberton Saturday, 18 October Mrs Agius said.
