Cadets uncool crisis
WHEN the Welcome Creek St John Ambulance Cadet Division’s fridge blew up, with it went the group’s only means of fundraising.
The self-funded, non-subsidised organisation, which trains life savers of the future, sells chocolates to keep itself afloat.
But the group’s volunteers found themselves with nowhere to keep their bounty and no way to raise money for a new fridge.
“It’s a catch 22,” volunteer Garry Heiniger said.
And in the lead-up to its 50th anniversary on December 18, the timing could hardly have been worse.
So the club is seeking public help in the hope a generous person, community group or business might donate either funds or a fridge.
Mr Heiniger said the organisation just didn’t have the cash to splash about.
“They haven’t got a lot of money. Anything they need they have to fundraise for,” he said.
Anyone who can help can contact Mr Heiniger 4152 4376.
