Volunteer looks for helper to fill shoes
CECIL Schiffke has worked for Mundubbera’s local ambulance committee for many years. But now he has to give it up. Health concerns this year forced Mr Schiffke to find another volunteer to tow the ambulance trailer to the main street and set it up for the day’s lucky envelope sales.
“Once the trailer is in place we have a roster of volunteers to sell the tickets so that’s not a problem,” Mr Schiffke said.
“We just need to get the trailer down and back each Friday.
Funds raised by the local ambulance committee go towards purchasing equipment for the Mundubbera ambulance centre and to improve services.
As income from the lucky envelopes is the main source of funds, having the trailer in the main street is essential.
Mundubbera Queensland Ambulance Service officer-in-charge Steve Smith thanked Mr Schiffke for his work.
