Fundraiser promises to sizzle
BARBECUES are being hosted around Tweed this weekend to raise money for the Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal.
The Tweed Shire Council and the Lions Clubs of Tweed are hosting six different barbecues from Tweed Heads to Pottsville on Saturday and Sunday.
Coolangatta and Tweed Heads Lions Club president Terry Williams said a barbecue was a good chance to get involved with the local community.
“As a Lions Club we have our own emergency relief funds, but this was something we could do locally,” Mr Williams said.
Mr Williams encouraged people to go along to any of the events and take the kids to enjoy the day while giving back to the flood crisis.
“We would like to see our volunteers worked off their feet for the whole day,” Mr Williams said.
Forty council members and 20 Lions Club members signed up to volunteer at the various events.
The sausage sizzle locations were spread out to give community members access to many locations.
Tweed Mayor Kevin Skinner said people could show their support by enjoying a sausage sandwich for a gold coin donation.
Sunday’s barbecue in Pottsville will also include a bacon-and-egg breakfast in the morning and music and acrobat performances.
