Yo­ghurt is a good cause

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

GAT­TON cus­tomers en­joyed yo­ghurt for a good cause for 24 hours at Nat­u­ral Al­ter­na­tive with money from all yo­ghurt sales be­ing do­nated.

The in­au­gu­ral yo­ghurt fundraiser gen­er­ated $822 and was do­nated to school chap­lain­cies within the re­gion.

Owner Anita Lyne said chap­lain­cies sup­port chil­dren who are “our fu­ture”.

“I think we have the re­spon­si­bil­ity to the younger ones of to­day, home life is hard for some of them,” Ms Lyne said.

“The chap­lain give them some­where safe to go, a nice ear, some­one who won’t judge them – it’s a safe place.”

The yo­ghurt ma­chine is a renowned fix­ture in the area, pro­vid­ing lo­cals with a cold fruity treat for the past 38 years.

“Our yo­ghurt ma­chine has been very pop­u­lar in town,” she said.

“The recipe is our recipe, you won’t taste it any­where else. It’s tra­di­tion if you lived in Gat­ton or grew up in Gat­ton, you come home and have a yo­ghurt.”

Ms Lyne said the tra­di­tion con­tin­ued strong with floods of school chil­dren pour­ing in for their 3pm treat.

The next yo­ghurt fundraiser will be held within the next month, with all sales do­nated to Lock­yer Dis­trict High School.
