Festive lunch to help community support group

THE Queensland Rural Regional and Remote Women's Network are hosting a Christmas party to raise money for the Darling West Community Support group.

QRRRWN president Marg Enkelmann said she's motivated to give back to the Darling West group.

"The Downs and West community support had helped a lot of farmers in the area in the South Burnett, so this is our thank you to them. All the profits of the Christmas party will be going to Downs and West community support,” she said.

"We're having our yearly Christmas party for the Barambah Branch of QRRRWN, but we decided to do something for the community, and that's how the idea originated.

"Through the Downs and West Community Support group, the money we make will go to the drought effected farmers out West.”

The 'Christmas party with a cause' will be held at the Wondai Diggers Club on Saturday, December 1.

"It's starting at 11am and it's a lunch that costs $30. There will be a giant raffle and we also have entertainment, as well as a two-course meal. Some of the entertainment will be the fundraised Wearable Art Parade, and we'll also have a singing group from Nanango,” Mrs Enkelmann said.

"It's Christmas themed so everyone is encouraged to dress up. There is a prize for the younger best dressed, and for the women. We're very excited because there are a few men coming to the event, too.

"It's a nice get together, and we know that the money will be helping someone else.”
