ALL FOR CHAR­ITY

LO­CAL busi­nesses have taken part in The Py­jama Foun­da­tion’s fundraiser, Wear PJs to Work.

The event took place Fri­day, July 17.

This year the staff at the Childers Post Of­fice took part in the spirit of the day and went to work in py­ja­mas.

The fa­mous duo, Bananas in Py­ja­mas B1 and B2, made a spe­cial guest ap­pear­ance at the Com­mon­wealth Bank.

B1 and B2 worked tire­lessly for the day serv­ing the bank cus­tomers.

Early morn­ing, B1 and B2 were sighted walk­ing on Churchill St, Childers.

Tracy from the Com­mon­wealth Bank said B1 and B2 got a sur­prise when they were barked and growled at by lo­cal dogs.

No in­juries were re­ported to B1 and B2 and they con­tin­ued to en­ter­tain the lo­cals.

The foun­da­tion sup­ports kids in foster care.

Since 2004, the foun­da­tion has of­fered learn­ing-based men­tor­ing pro­grams to chil­dren in care.

The char­ity re­lies on do­na­tions and events such as this to raise aware­ness and much-needed funds.
