Singing in support
LIKE the lyrics of a catchy ballad, doing good deeds for the needy has always come easy to the Warwick and District Country Club.
Club president Ron Farrell puts it simply: “We like to help, when help is needed”.
This unofficial motto of these local troubadours has been the catalyst for six concerts this year, organised to raise funds for the Warwick and District Disability Support Group.
“This support group doesn’t get any government funding and yet there are families and individuals in our community that could really do with a hand,” Mr Farrell said.
“So in January we stepped in to see what we could do and to date we’ve raised more than $5000.”
On Sunday they will hold their seventh and final charity concert for the year at Massie Hall.
He said all proceeds from the concert, which kicks off at 11am, would go to the disability support group.
WDCMC secretary Ev Eastwell described the concerts as successful, both emotionally and financially.
“We’ve enjoyed having members of the disability group join us on stage from time to time and it has been an honour playing for them,” she said.
“They plan to put the funds towards a 24/7 respite centre in Warwick.”
The charity concert starts at 11am at Massie Hall with admission of $5 including afternoon tea.
