Balonne’s se­niors re­turn the love

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS / WELCOME -

PRO­CEEDS from the last four Balonne Se­niors games were gen­er­ously do­nated this week to an or­gan­i­sa­tion close to the group’s heart.

St Ge­orge Healthy Ag­ing met with Life Flight on Tues­day to present a cheque for $500.

Sec­re­tary Colleen Faulkner said the do­na­tion was a per­sonal move for the group of se­niors.

“One of our com­mit­tee mem­bers is hav­ing to use An­gel Flights at the mo­ment.

“As a mat­ter of fact she has just taken off.”

The pro­ceeds were from se­niors games, which are held once a year and wel­come teams from all over the south­west.

“It’s a great day for the el­derly,” Colleen said. “We’re a very small, not for profit or­gan­i­sa­tion and we couldn’t do this with­out the help of won­der­ful ser­vice clubs and the sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses.”
