THE Caloun­dra Com­mu­nity Kin­der­garten have mus­tered all they can to help a ru­ral drought- af­fected kindy.

It hosted a “rain dance” to get ev­ery one in the spirit of will­ing more rain to the strug­gling school.

“Our com­mit­tee de­cided to hold a fund rais­ing disco for the fam­i­lies to at­tend and had a bar­be­cue and do­nated drinks and cakes for sale,” Caloun­dra Com­mu­nity Kin­der­garten’s Belinda Lind­say said.

“All monies raised is go­ing to be sent to our newly adopted drought af­fected kindy in Charleville.”

Belinda said the pur­pose of the fundraiser was to raise enough to give the fam­i­lies at Charleville Kindy a cel­e­bra­tion disco to help raise com­mu­nity morale.

“Our com­mit­tee worked hard to get dona­tions from sev­eral lo­cal busi­nesses and raised $1042 ,” said the Caloun­dra Kindy staff mem­ber.

“The pres­i­dent of Charleville Com­mu­nity Kindy has been so grate­ful to re­ceive the funds and is re­ally ex­cited that they will get to use the money to ben­e­fit their kin­der­garten, but also their com­mu­nity.”

Charleville Kindy plan to hold a dance at its lo­cal golf club with a bar­be­cue or­gan­ised by its lo­cal Ro­tary Club.

“Their rea­son­ing be­hind this is the golf club is not be­ing used at all at the mo­ment be­cause of the con­di­tions and any money ro­tary re­ceive, goes back into the com­mu­nity – so it re­ally has a flow-on ef­fect.”
