$500 boost for Childers SES

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

CHILDERS SES will be able to grease its wheels and buy up im­por­tant new equip­ment with the help of a do­na­tion from the Bux­ton Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion.

BFA pres­i­dent Garry Mid­dling and com­mit­tee mem­ber Jim Baron joined SES team mem­bers on Tues­day to present the cheque, which was ac­cepted by Deputy Lo­cal Con­troller Aaron Frazer.

“They do a fan­tas­tic job,” Mr Baron said of the SES.

“They were here dur­ing the floods of course, and they’ve helped us out enor­mously with park­ing at our an­nual Clas­sic Car and Mo­tor­cy­cle Fes­ti­val.”

“The do­na­tion will help us buy equip­ment like trail­ers, and train­ing tools, so we can be more self-suf­fi­cient,” Mr Frazer said.

“It’s much ap­pre­ci­ated – we rely heav­ily on do­na­tions.”

The SES will be at the Bux­ton Clas­sic Car and Mo­tor­cy­cle Fes­ti­val on Oc­to­ber 16.

For de­tails call Jim Baron on 0427 786 028.
