Serving it up for a good cause
IT WAS all hands on deck at the Woodgate Men’s Shed stall as visitors lined up for some old-fashioned tucker.
Woodgate Men’s Shed president Col Ensbey said the Easter Fair was a fantastic fundraising opportunity for the group as it manned the grills to serve up sizzling sausages and mouth-watering steaks.
“We were here from 6.45am and it didn’t let up,” he said.
“Our steak was second to none and we had the best burgers in town.”
Mr Ensbey said among the popular choices on the menu was the humble bacon.
“Last year we had a lot of people ask about breakfast,” he said.
Mr Ensbey said the day out offered the members the opportunity to socialise with the public and continue the mateship that was so vital to many of them.
“For some of the guys, being a part of the Men’s Shed has given them new life,” he said.
“We have a guy with us whose wife has dementia and so he’s been on his own.
“Now, we can’t keep him out of the shed and he’s out here helping today.”
