Club fundraiser recognised
AFTER the North Burnett Regional Council gave the green light for a skate park to be built in Mt Perry, the town began actively fundraising.
The charity auction held by the Axemen and Sawyers’ Club received the award for Community Event of the Year.
The auction held last October raised $6300 for the skate park.
Auction donations were provided by townspeople and some external sponsors.
Since its establishment in 2003, the annual auction has raised $86,300 for charity projects, including Rotary Rural Accommodation, Children’s Burns Unit, Ronald McDonald House and gym equipment for Mt Perry Sport and Rec Club.
