A do­na­tion to help Eco Barge

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

“The money will go straight to­wards feed­ing and car­ing for the tur­tles.”

THE Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach Inc held its meet­ing at Eco Barge HQ on Mon­day this week with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each level of gov­ern­ment in at­ten­dance.

Found­ing chair of Eco Barge Clean Seas Inc Libby Edge was pre­sented with a $500 do­na­tion by Fed­eral Mem­ber for Daw­son Ge­orge Chris­tensen and State Mem­ber for Whit­sun­day Ja­son Costi­gan.

Ms Edge said she was thrilled to have been se­lected. “The money will go straight to­wards feed­ing at car­ing for the tur­tles,” she said.

The do­na­tions were part of the club’s My Whit­sun­day Lo­cal Phone and Busi­ness guide Ben­e­fi­ciary pro­gram where ad­ver­tis­ers in com­mu­nity pages can nom­i­nate a char­ity or com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion to re­ceive the pro­ceeds of their ad­ver­tise­ment.

Both Ge­orge and Ja­son paid for ad­ver­tise­ments in the cur­rent is­sue of the guide which was pub­lished in Novem­ber 2015. Ms Edge brought mem­bers and guests up to date on the work of the Eco Barge and the tur­tle hos­pi­tal.
