Bridge players give flood fund a hand

MEMBERS of Bundaberg Bridge Club have put their cards on the table and hands in their pockets to help flood victims.

Last week club president Ian Bloore handed over a $1000 donation to the flood relief appeal at the Salvation Army's Tom Quinn Community Centre.

Mr Bloore said the club members had not staged any special fundraising effort, and the money had just come out of their general funds.

"We don't normally make donations, but Bundaberg is suffering from the floods," he told the NewsMail.

"With the severity of what happened club members thought they would like to help."

Mr Bloore said club members paid subscriptions, and the donation had come from that.

The Bundaberg Bridge Club was formed in 1971 and has more than 100 members.
