Community barbecue to support drought appeal
THE Whitsunday Lions will be cooking up a storm at the Lions Airlie Beach Community Markets on the foreshore this Saturday.
Residents and tourists are invited to enjoy the barbecue breakfast to help support the North Queensland drought appeal. Whitsunday Lions member Susan McAllister said all proceeds would be donated to the drought appeal to support farmers out west.
“The Whitsunday Lions have already donated $10,000 but they want to do more,” she said.
“So come along to the market on Saturday morning and have your breakfast knowing that your hard earned money will be going towards helping our farmers.”
The Lions Airlie Beach Community Markets features many works of the region’s best artists and also includes art and handcraft showcases, locally made jewellery, clothing, souvenirs, glass blowing, fruit, vegetables, locally sourced meats and plenty of live entertainment.
The markets operate from 7am until around midday.
