Cowboys digging deep
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.
