Charity golf day coming back to Wondai

WONDAI Firies will be leaving the station and hitting the fairways to help raise funds for a worthy cause.

The team are hosting the seventh annual Charity Golf Day next month to help raise money for RACQ CareFlight.

CareFlight fundraising manager Angela Miles said the event would be a fun way to raise money for the vital service.

 "The event will be a terrific day on the course, with the added bonus of knowing you're making a vital contribution to CareFlight," Ms Miles said.

"Golfing talent is absolutely optional.

"We encourage players of all abilities to give it a go, because the day really is all about having fun."

She said fundraising was vital as more each rescue mission costs more than $12,500.

The service is frequently used in South Burnett with CareFlight performing 167 missions in the area in 2014 alone.

The charity event will tee off at 10am on May 2 at the Wondai Country Club on the Bunya Highway.

To register for the Wondai Firies Charity Golf Day phone Steve on 0447 787 082 or Chris on 0437 685 996.

Registrations close on Wednesday April 29.
