Cow­boys dig­ging deep

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

NORTH Queens­land Cow­boys play­ers Kane Lin­nett and Kal­ifa Faifai Loa were the spe­cial guests at Plants Whit­sun­days’ National Tree Day cel­e­bra­tions on Sun­day.

The two play­ers were keen to join in the fun and meet their fans.

Winger Kal­ifa Faifai Loa said the event was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to show sup­port to the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity and stand be­hind Toy­ota’s be­lief in National Tree Day.

Filby’s Mo­tors dealer prin­ci­pal Robert Filby said the com­pany had proudly sup­ported Planet Ark’s National Tree Day for the past 14 years.

He said the Toy­ota fam­ily took pride in help­ing cre­ate a sense of aware­ness for the enivron­ment.

“Ev­ery tree we plant will help pre­serve the en­vi­ron­men­tal fu­ture of our coun­try for the next gen­er­a­tion of Aus­tralians,” he said.

Plants Whit­sun­day owner Jenny Stokes said it was an ex­cel­lent idea to part­ner with Filby’s for National Tree Day.

“It was a big sur­prise to me to find out the Cow­boys play­ers were com- ing down,” adding that the live ra­dio broad­cast and give­aways, a PCYC sausage siz­zle and raf­fles on the day all added to the at­mos­phere.

All par­ties in­volved were happy to help pro­vide aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tion about National Tree Day and the im­por­tant role it plays in en­sur­ing the pro­tec­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity of the en­vi­ron­ment.

Filby’s Mo­tors also had the lat­est mod­els of Toy­ota Prius and Camry Hy­brid on dis­play in the Plants Whit­sun­day car park.
