Fundraising with some horse help
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.
