Fundrais­ing with some horse help

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

AS GE­ORGE Brown made his way on a sulky down Bur­nett High­way, it was a sight to see.

“The car­a­van­ers couldn’t be­lieve it, well, no­body could,” he said.

Mr Brown was trav­el­ling with three horses from Monto to Eidsvold, all in the name of rais­ing money for pre­vent­ing de­men­tia.

“I ended up rais­ing $450 from the trip, it took me 11 hours to com­plete,” Mr Brown said.

“On the high­way, I had to be fol­lowed with hazard lights.

“But it was a re­ally good trip, with no prob­lems.”

But, the fundrais­ing ef­fort for Alzheimer’s Aus­tralia would not have been pos­si­ble without the help of lo­cals.

“Thanks to Kevin and Naomi who gave horse feed to the trip,” Mr Brown said.

“And to Bill and Wendy Netz, for help­ing out on the jour­ney.

“And thanks for all of Monto for get­ting be­hind me, I am go­ing to keep rais­ing money.”

Mr Brown has been rais­ing money for a while now, cash­ing in bat­ter­ies and alu­minium for both preven­tion of de­men­tia and cancer.

Through bat­ter­ies, he re­cently cashed in $269 and $312 for alu­minium.

“For alu­minium, the re­turn amount has dropped down to 45c/kg but I’m go­ing to keep do­ing it,” he said.

Bat­ter­ies can be dropped off to Far­mStuff, and alu­minium cans to Mr Brown’s place on Monto-Glad­stone Road.
