Bargara gets some divine intervention

Golf: The Scripture Union Golf Day will return to Bargara Golf Club this weekend with more than 75 people competing to raise money for school chaplains around the region.

Scripture Union regional manager John Van Der Heidje said the organisation was looking to gain momentum after missing the annual fundraiser last year.

“It probably isn't at the point it was at before it stopped last year, but we are trying to regain that momentum this year,” he said.

The event raises funds that go to the wages of chaplains who serve in schools around Bundaberg.

Mr Van Der Heidje said there were 11 chaplains in Bundaberg schools.

They receive part of their wages from community fundraisers.

The golf day is one of several fundraising events Scripture Union holds each year.

“In years past it has been one of our biggest fundraisers,” Mr Van Der Heidje said.
