Bundy pulls together to help teens

DONATIONS of basics such as shampoo and hygiene products have been pouring in to help Bundaberg's homeless and underprivileged teenagers receive an education.

Bundaberg Business Women's Network member Lorraine Trigg said she had been overwhelmed by the number of donations which had been dropped off at Andersons Curtains and Soft Furnishings since the NewsMail ran an article on Friday.

After the article, Officeworks administration manager Mel Albert was so inspired she organised for the store to donate $200 worth of stationery and also provide a donation bin at their Bourbong Street store.

“I thought it was such a great cause because it is teenagers who are just trying to get their education,” she said.
