THE Bundaberg region will be able to meet its very own world champion and help a cancer sufferer at the same time on Saturday.

Sue Ramsey, who owns the Moore Park Service Station in Moore Park Beach, has organised a meet and greet with Clinton Moore at 4pm.

Moore won the prestigious Red Bull X-Fighters freestyle motocross crown in Abu Dhabi in November last year.

Mrs Ramsey said the event would be held at the Moore Park Tavern, and Moore was due to arrive at 4pm.

"He'll do a meet and greet, chat, take photos and autograph memorabilia," she said.

Mrs Ramsey said Moore lived in Moore Park Beach.

"He's a fantastic bloke, very down to earth," she said.

"We wanted to welcome our world champion back to Moore Park Beach."

The event will also be fundraiser to help cancer sufferer Shari, who has asked that her surname not be used.

Shari is a nurse at the Bundaberg Hospital, and Mrs Ramsey said she had helped many people in the community.

"I have spoken to Clinton and he is totally 100% behind the idea of having all proceeds of the day be given to Shari," Mrs Ramsey said.

"I know from personal experience that Shari goes beyond her nursing to help family members and patients cope with this disease.

"She's a lovely lady, I don't think she realises the impact she has on people's lives."

Mrs Ramsey said the fundraiser would be through raffle and auctions.

"Clinton is going to bring one of his jerseys that he will autograph for us to auction," she said.

Mrs Ramsey said the event would also feature live music.

"We just want people to come along and have a relaxing afternoon," she said.

The event is open to people right across the region.

Mrs Ramsey said the event was also supported by Absolute Termite Solutions and Pest Control, the Bundaberg Outdoor Power Centre and the Moore Park Tavern.

She said Moore had a big following, and this was a chance for people to meet him.

Moore won the title by beating championship rival Thomas Pages in the first knockout battle.

He won three events last year.
