Pick a picket to fund play

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

LO­GAN’S Ad­ven­ture play­ground are mov­ing for­ward with their lat­est fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive which will al­low fam­i­lies to put their name on the fence pick­ets that will sur­round the play­ground.

The fence pick­ets that make up the main fence will be for sale and the pub­lic can have their fam­ily’s name etched into the picket as a re­minder of their con­tri­bu­tion for years to come.

Quota In­ter­na­tional of the Whit­sun­day Coast (QIWC) also lent their sup­port to the play­ground on the week­end.

QIWC pres­i­dent Aimee Mitchell said the group were happy to make a do­na­tion af­ter hold­ing a very suc­cess­ful Great Gatsby wine, cheese and movie night in Proser­pine on Satur­day.

“We were ec­static about how much the com- mu­nity sup­ported us and it was great to see so many peo­ple turn up in their cos­tumes on the night,” she said.

“Ev­ery­one looked fan­tas­tic and we want to thank ev­ery­one who came along and all the lo­cal busi­nesses that sup­ported our event.”

Pro­ject co-or­di­na­tor Kel­lie Chart said she en­cour­aged peo­ple to come on board and buy a piece of the play­ground ex­plain­ing that com­mu­nity sup­port was absolutely para­mount to the pro­ject get­ting fin­ished.

“Busi­ness spon­sor­ship brochures are out there but we want to give fam­i­lies the chance to be a part of the play­ground and help raise funds to make the pro­ject a re­al­ity,” she said.

Pick­ets sell from $80 and they will be on sale at Cannonvale State School’s fete this Satur­day, July 27.

Or­ders can be taken via the Lo­gan’s Ad­ven­ture Play­ground web­site or via their Face­book page.
