Expo brings crews together
Chance to thank local service
IF YOU’VE ever wanted to thank the region’s dedicated emergency services personnel, here’s your chance.
In an event unlike any other in Bundaberg, the Community Safety and Emergency Services Expo is set to gather services from across the region today.
Senior Constable Mick Gray said in the light of the recent bushfires, this event provided the perfect opportunity for the community to say thanks to their local heroes, while enjoying live entertainment and raising funds for emergency organisations.
With plenty for the whole family, Sen Const Gray said there would be rides for the kids, live crosses from Hitz939 and a performance from country artist Graeme Connors.
Throughout the day there will be raffles and an auction with funds going towards Bundaberg Hospital’s intensive care unit, Lifeflight and the bushfire appeal.
“There will be song auctions, a signed guitar and a variety of other items,” Sen Const Gray said.
He said the event began as a road safety expo and grew to incorporate a range of services whom frequently work together.
Sen Const Gray said there would be parking restrictions, and people could park on Phoebe Cres.
Sen Const Gray said the event would run from 9am–4pm.
