Mo­bros out in force

North Bur­nett’s gen­eros­ity goes on show again

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Ge­orge Smith

MONTO’S gen­eros­ity has come out again this month for the Movem­ber men’s health cam­paign.

The town’s male pop­u­la­tion has ral­lied to­gether and sup­plied 35 par­tic­i­pants for the cam­paign.

IGA Monto team co-or­di­na­tor Natalie Poin­ton said the IGA con­tin­gent of 34 men had raised funds through sell­ing raf­fle tick­ets and would have a sausage siz­zle out­side the store to­day from 11am to 1pm.

There will also be a cricket match at the Monto sports field on Novem­ber 30 with a bar­be­cue, li­censed bar and mu­sic.

Ms Poin­ton said she was im­pressed with the community spirit shown by the town, and en­cour­aged more peo­ple to sup­port the cause.

“I am very happy with the re­sponse to date, and if any­one wants to do­nate, they can come and buy a raf­fle ticket,” she said.

A smaller but no less en­thu­si­as­tic team has been as­sem­bled by ac­count­ing firm Ac­count­ing and You.

Len Fe­lesina is the team cap­tain and sole Monto rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Rhys Giles and Ryan Harth are also par­tic­i­pat­ing from the Biloela of­fice.

“We de­cided to join be­cause we all know some­one with health prob­lems,” Mr Fe­lesina said.

“This is just to raise gen­eral aware­ness.”

The firm will have a do­na­tion point at its of­fice at 41New­ton St, Monto.
