Members of the Rotary Club of Boyne Tannum were delighted to take delivery of their new BBQ Trailer and Marquee after securing a grant from the QGC Communities Fund. Total funding of $23,318 was provided from the fund for the purchase of these new assets will enhance the Club’s fundraising potential and local community participation.
The BBQ Trailer and Marquee are valuable acquisitions for the Boyne Tannum based service group. It will provide Club members with the opportunity to support local events, as well as providing a long-term income stream for the Club.
“We are so happy with how the BBQ Trailer has turned out,” Club President, Wendy Brading said. “We are only a small Club, so this trailer means a lot to us.”
“In the past, if we have wanted to cook a BBQ anywhere other than our monthly Bindaree Garage Sale sausage sizzle, it has meant that members have needed to lug heavy barbeques into the back of utes, along with all the other items we need. With the new trailer, everything is in one place and it is much safer with less manual handling,” Wendy stated.
Wendy went on to say, “we are so grateful to the QGC Communities Fund for providing the funds for the project. We were also fortunate to have Queensland Aerial support our project by providing the beautiful image of Wild Cattle Creek that we have put on the trailer.”
