Sizzling support for good cause

THE sizzling of sausages was causing a stir at Bunnings on Saturday as Rose City residents got to sample the delights off the barbie, all for a good cause.

The Great Aussie Barbecue is a Lions Club district project which raises money and awareness for the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia.

Supporter Ross Kingston purchased a snag to do his bit to support the Lions Club.

“The Lions are doing all their volunteer work and everything they raise goes to research so everything helps,” Mr Kingston said.

“Over the years they would have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the cause.”

Warwick Lions secretary Denise O’Connor said they were also handing out Hypo Drive kits, a pack for diabetics to remember to watch their sugar levels while driving.

“It’s all about encouraging driving safely and increasing awareness for diabetics for when their sugar is getting low,” she said.

Member Mike Keim said it was a great day and people had been showing their support for the cause.

Lions members next plan to man the Gladfield Driver Reviver.
