Sur­prise for loved Moggs

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

KARMA has done a full cir­cle for a Gayn­dah lo­cal with a gen­er­ous spirit.

Ken Mogg is well known in the com­mu­nity for his gen­eros­ity and sup­port of lo­cal clubs, or­gan­i­sa­tions and fundrais­ers.

Mr Mogg and his wife, Lor­raine, have been part of the Gayn­dah com­mu­nity for many years and are al­ways gen­er­ous, de­spite any hard­ships they may be fac­ing in their own lives.

Their busi­ness was se­verely af­fected by both the 2011 and 2013 floods and Mr Mogg is cur­rently un­der­go­ing chemo­ther­apy treat­ment for can­cer.

De­spite this, they spon­sored the en­ter­tain­ment for the Heidi Pringle Fundrais­ing Auc­tion and do­nated an auc­tion item for the event on Satur­day night.

Mr Mogg in­tended to be there in per­son to sup­port the fundraiser and had told one of the event or­gan­is­ers, Amanda Wenck, that he wanted to bid on the hol­i­day as he re­ally wanted to take Lor­raine away for a few days.

Know­ing of his com­mu­nity spirit and cur­rent health bat­tle, Ms Wenck de­cided to sur­prise him with the gift of a hol­i­day.

“I made one phone call to Noosa Pa­cific Re­sort and told them Ken’s story, the re­cep­tion­ist said he had goose­bumps and that he would speak to the man­agers, the next day the man­agers rang me and said they would love to do­nate a three-night hol­i­day to a cou­ple who so clearly de­serve it,” she said.

GIFT: Ken and Lor­raine Mogg.
