Mak­ing mir­a­cles hap­pen for sick kids

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MADONNA, Joan Jett and Suzie Q have rocked out in Mun­dub­bera to raise money for char­ity.

Em­ploy­ees at the phar­macy and IGA donned their wildest out­fits for the Mater Lit­tle Mir­a­cles Fundrais­ers.

Rock stars sold cup­cakes and bis­cuits for $1 last Fri­day for the char­ity, which looks af­ter sick ba­bies and chil­dren.

Phar­macy as­sis­tant Na­dine McLen­nan said the phar­macy took part in the fundraiser ev­ery year and ev­ery­body was keen to dig their rock star out­fits out of their wardrobes.

“There are so many lit­tle ba­bies that have heart con­di­tions when they are born and have other prob­lems, they re­ally do need at­ten­tion and by rais­ing money it helps to sup­port them.”

Phar­macy as­sis­tant Ashlee Eisel im­pressed with her Madonna cos­tume, but said it was un­likely to be­come a reg­u­lar look.

“I was look­ing through eBay and came across the cos­tume,” she said. “It’s all about the hair.” As of Fri­day af­ter­noon, Mun­dub­bera Phar­macy had raised $189.65 and was still col­lect­ing do­na­tions.
