Vol­un­teer looks for helper to fill shoes

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
