Dedicated to the cause

WHEN Peter Stewart's father retired from his position on the Warwick Ambulance Committee board in 1975, he passed it on to his son.

Now, 35 years later, Mr Stewart has not only remained an active member, but has led the board in the last six years as president.

Yesterday, along with another long-serving committee member, Doug Madsen, he was out and about fundraising for the Warwick Ambos.

"It's for the community benefit," he said.

"Warwick is an area centre that looks after St George, Dirranbandi, Texas, Goondiwindi and Stanthorpe, so it's important to help out."

Mr Stewart and Mr Madsen were selling raffle tickets for a large flat screen television at Rose City Shoppingworld.

They estimated they had sold about 1200 raffle tickets during the week.
