Sup­port those who sup­port us

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

EN­JOY a night of fun and yum while sup­port­ing an im­por­tant cause.

Lai­d­ley Chap­laincy Com­mit­tee is host­ing their an­nual dessert night on Tuesday, May 28, and is en­cour­ag­ing the com­mu­nity to come along and sup­port the vi­tal work of chap­pies.

Com­mit­tee chair Kerry Bat­tersby said chap­pies spent nearly half of their time pro­vid­ing so­cial, emo­tional and spir­i­tual sup­port to the com­mu­nity and the dessert night was an opportunit­y for the com­mu­nity to sup­port them.

“Chap­lains re­ally pro­vide a crit­i­cal sup­port ser­vice to the com­mu­nity,” she said.

“It’s just go­ing to be a re­ally good night to get to­gether to sup­port the school com­mu­nity.”

The event is free to at­tend, with do­na­tions to sup­port local chap­pies en­cour­aged.

Lai­d­ley Dis­trict State School head of cur­ricu­lum and 2019 May­oral Award win­ner Nicci Martin will be guest speaker on the night.

Mrs Bat­tersby was ex­cited for her talk.

“She’s go­ing to be talk­ing a lit­tle about what she be­lieves in about the value of the school com­mu­nity and the role it plays,” she said.

“And, of course, be­ing the re­cip­i­ent of the May­oral Award at this year’s Aus­tralia Day hon­ours – she’ll be talk­ing a lit­tle bit about that.”

The night kicks off at 6pm next Tuesday at Lai­d­ley Cul­tural Cen­tre.
