Additionally, thank you to all of the people who attended and helped to organise the fundraising events. They were a great success and enjoyed by all.

Have a Go Day on the 3rd of June 2012

This fundraiser gave anyone the opportunity of “have a go” on a footbike.

Young and old joined in for a kick along the Nundah track.

Among the attendees was Brian Haupt who is vision impaired. Brian kicked the 400m circuit by following another footbiker who rang a bell, and was also accompanied by another footbiker who gave instructions.

Wine Tasting Fundraiser on 20 May 2012

A fun night was had tasting wine from the Clovely Estate Vineyard in the Burnett Valley without actually leaving Brisbane.

Over 2 hours, a selection of wines were tasted, each accompanied by a sumptuous selection of canapés.

Thank you to Clovely Estate for such a great outing.

Turkish Dinner & Music Fundraiser on 1 April 2012

Over 50 people enjoyed a delicious Turkish meal and sang along to the songs of the ‘60s with That 60’s Guy.

As always, the food was fantastic, and the music quickly had everyone singing along to tunes that included crowd-pleasers like “Raindrops keep falling on my head” and a full range of the Beetles.
