Great service helps others

BUNDABERG drivers can get a dose of good old-fashioned service when the Walker St Caltex service station hosts a series of charity service days, beginning next Saturday.

Service station owners Jayde Devlin and her husband Paul took over the service station on the corner of Targo and Walker Sts about six months ago and came up with the fundraising idea to help support local community groups.

"Volunteers from each group will be pumping fuel, washing windscreens, pumping tyres and collecting donations," she said.

"People can make donations or they don't even have to spend a cent more and they will be helping the groups, because 10% of the day's profits will also be donated."

The driveway service will be available on Saturdays from 10am - 2pm, with the Elliott Heads Surf Life Saving Club to benefit from the first day on October 13.

Moore Park Surf Life Saving Club, an entrant from the Miss Bundy Grand Prix - supporting the Leukaemia Foundation - and the Umoja Orphanage Kenya Project will host the following days respectively.

Mr Devlin said they hoped to continue the service days on a regular basis and give more community groups the chance to participate.

"This is the first one, so we'll see how it goes," she said.

"If it goes well, hopefully we can do it every three months."
