Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY KIDS -

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.

HELP­ING HAND: Whit­sun­day Lions mem­bers Sue Cob­ham, Les­ley Howard, Alan Brown­ing, Glen Guske, He­len Toy, (front) Betty Wil­son, Bar­bara McGre­gor, Robina Mealy and Sue Brown­ing are look­ing for­ward to hold­ing a bar­be­cue this Satur­day at the fore­shore mar­kets.
