Cafe aids marine volunteers

NEIGHBOURS Point Danger Volunteer Marine Rescue and Cafe Dbar love to look out for each other.

VMR Captain Bernie Gabriel yesterday presented Cafe Dbar owners Steve and Donna Archdeacon with a framed photo of rescue boat Twin Towns in action as a thank you for raising $2000 for them earlier in the year.

The Archdeacons organised the inaugural Vibe on the Hill back in August to raise funds for the VMR.

About 5000 people descended on Point Danger for a day of art, dance and music.

“We’re very grateful for Cafe Dbar for doing this for us. When they told us they wanted to do Vibe on the Hill and that they wanted to donate the proceeds to us it was just fantastic,” Capt Gabriel said.

He said they used the funds to purchase a back up service for their sea tracker.

“It allows us to keep track of our ships day and night.

“Vibe on the Hill was a great community day and I hope it runs again next year.”

Mr Archdeacon said he will hang the picture in the cafe.

“We couldn’t have been happier to help the VMR out this way,” he said.

Capt Gabriel said the VMR is also currently looking for a media officer to join.

Anyone interested can contact Capt Gabriel on (07) 5536 9333.
