Biggenden leading naming rights
THE sale of Rotary Lodge to IMPACT Make Your Wish will have no implications in the continued running of the community service.
The Bundaberg Health Services Foundation will continue to manage the lodge and pay a lease to the new owners.
Foundation manager Maria Burnet said Rotary Lodge was opened in 2011 for patients and escorts who needed low-cost accommodation.
“Our aim was that one day we would be able to build our own, purposebuilt accommodation complex.”
This is now becoming a reality with $8612 donat- ed in memory of Coalstoun Lakes man Morrison Marshall, and a building fund established in his honour. in the meantime the foundation continues to receive generous donations from the Bundaberg andNorth Burnett communities as part of the Naming Rights Challenge to keep the lodge open.
Recent donations include: Sunrise Rotary Bundaberg $2000, East Bundaberg Rotary $1600, Childers Rotary $1000, QCWA Mulgildie $50, Apex Club of Biggenden $1200, 4 Rivers Trail Horse Riders Club Gayndah $1700, Monto Community Development $500, QCWA Gayndah $600, and Eidsvold Hospital Auxiliary form community street party $2500.
The Naming Rights Challenge to date: Biggenden $9812, Bundaberg $4600, Eidsvold $2500, Gayndah $2300, Childers and Mt Perry $1000 each, Monto $752.
