Gin Gin's big shave

FIONA Bugler is gearing up for a big change on Saturday, March 13 when she shaves her head as part of the World’s Greatest Shave to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland.

Ms Bugler said she had only just started fundraising after she realised the date was fast approaching.

“Sometimes I’m nervous. I think when it happens I could be a mess,” she said.

Ms Bugler, who works at Gin Gin Coral Coast Pharmacy, will have collections tins in all Coral Coast pharmacies, the Gin Gin IGA and hairdresser as well as the Bank of Queensland in Bundaberg.

The shave will be held at the Gin Gin Hotel.

Food volunteers needed

ROSEDALE State School chaplain Deltry Dickie is searching for volunteers to help prepare, serve and clean up after a healthy breakfast provided for students on Thursday mornings from 8.15am to 8.45pm.

Volunteers will need to hold a current Blue Card.

To put your name down, phone Ms Dickie on 4156 5777 on Mondays, Tuesdays and every second Thursday or leave your details at the school.

Past relics wanted

OLD photos and knick-knacks are needed for the Yesteryear Garden Party to be held in the Biggenden Health Service gardens on May 8.

Ann Keogh is helping to organise the event, which will be the last function held in the grounds before the redevelopment of the new hospital complex.

It is planned to incorporate the Cancer Council Queensland’s Biggest Morning Tea, which is always held in the grounds in May.

“We are seeking photographs and memorabilia about health activities from 1921 to the present for a display,” Ms Keogh said.

“We are also endeavouring to contact all past staff and are getting quite excited about the day, as it will mark the end of an era for the hospital in its present state.”

Phone 4127 6400 about items to loan or for more information.
