Isis Town and Country - - News - By MATTHEW MCIN­ER­NEY

CHILDERS Men’s Shed pres­i­dent Rob Dight could not hide his de­light af­ter re­ceiv­ing a do­na­tion from Childers CWA and the Australia Day Com­mit­tee yes­ter­day.

Mr Dight was pre­sented the $226.60 do­na­tion by lo­cal QCWA mem­bers Rose Shut­tle­wood and Rama Wil­lis and Australia Day com­mit­tee rep­re­sen­ta­tive Lu­cia Momesso.

It is the lat­est in a long list of lo­cal sup­port for the Men’s Shed, which is work­ing to es­tab­lish a new base at North St.

“We’re re­ally grate­ful for this,” he said.

“We’re al­ways in the com­mu­nity to help every­body.

“We’ve been get­ting a great re­sponse from lo­cals as well.

“They’re say­ing how great it will be for the town once we’ve got it all sorted.”

Ev­ery dollar raised from a gold-coin do­na­tion drive at the Australia Day break­fast is then pre­sented to a char­ity.

Childers Men’s Shed was cho­sen as the char­ity this year.

Miss Momesso thanked the Men’s Shed for their con­tri­bu­tion to the town on be­half of com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Donna Dun­can.

Miss Momesso ex­tended thanks to sev­eral or­gan­i­sa­tions that helped the com­mit­tee, in­clud­ing Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil, the Queens­land Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion, Childers Fruit and Veg­etable Grow­ers As­so­ci­a­tion, Childers Australia Day Com­mit­tee and any other vol­un­teers.

“We want to thank ev­ery­one who turn up to sup­port the days and we’re al­ways on the look­out for more peo­ple to help if they can,” Miss Momesso said.
