MONTO’S St John Am­bu­lance Di­vi­sion will ben­e­fit from a $200 do­na­tion from the Monto Bun­yips Mo­tor­cy­clists.

St John Am­bu­lance Monto di­vi­sion man­ager Col Har­ris said he was very grate­ful for the show of sup­port and the funds would be de­posited into an ac­count at head of­fice in Bris­bane.

This ac­count is used for pur­chas­ing equip­ment for the Monto Di­vi­sion but as Mr Har­ris only learnt of the do­na­tion on Mon­day there has not been time to work out how it will be used.

“Funds are very hard to get so we really ap­pre­ci­ate a do­na­tion like this,” he said.

“We haven’t worked out what we need yet as we only just found out sowe will need a meet- ing to de­cide how it will be spent.

“The di­vi­sion is al­ready booked for a num­ber of events in the re­gion so we cer­tainly need equip­ment for treat­ing peo­ple.”

Bun­yips’ sec­re­tary Sue Wil­liams said the group was a col­lec­tion of mo­tor­cy­cle en­thu­si­asts who raised funds for im­por­tant com­mu­nity projects.

Ms Wil­liams said the group iden­ti­fied those in need.

“And then we do a ride to raise funds and when camp­ing we are tough guys toast­ing marsh­mal­lows,” she said.

“We wel­come any­one with a mo­tor­cy­cle. We are mo­tor­cy­cle en­thu­si­asts who raise funds for im­por­tant projects and have fun along the way.”

The Bun­yips are not an of­fi­cial mo­tor­cy­cle club. They have so­cial meet­ings for any­one who rides a mo­tor­cy­cle.

The Ban­croft Sports Com­mit­tee has also re­cently re­ceived a $100 do­na­tion from the group.

To join the Bun­yips please con­tact the Pres­i­dent Rob Mitchell at Kew­pie Monto or call Sue Wil­liams on 0467 261 817.
