THE smiles of the children at the Gin Gin Little Athletics Club said it all on Saturday, as the club received a much-needed helping hand from South Australian co-operative Master Butchers.

Following extensive damage to the club's facilities from ex-tropical cyclone Oswald in early February Josh Mclean went to the club and was shocked with what he saw.

"It was just surreal," Mclean said. "It was like something out of the apocalypse, the grass was barely visible with the mud, and the clubs high jump mats all destroyed, even the gazebo and shade cloths were stripped bare to the frame."

That's where Master Butchers stepped in.

"My dad gave me a call and asked which sporting club I felt deserved a helping hand," he said.

"It was obvious to me that many of the well-funded clubs in Bundaberg would survive and continue to receive local support, but the Gin Gin Athletics Club needed a helping hand."

A decision was then made to donate $1000 worth of meat to the club to assist with fundraising activities.

Master Butchers is owned by its members, which comprises abattoir of operators, boning room operators, supermarkets, retail and wholesale butchers, and small goods manufacturers in South Australia, NT and Western Victoria.
