Sausages snapped up at barbecue

CABARITA surfers were greeted with a sausage and burger brekky yesterday at the Tweed Coast Rotary Club barbecue.

Rotary Club member Tim Richards manned the barbecue from 9am to 2pm.

“I lost count of how many sausages I cooked,” Mr Richards said.

“They just want someone good looking up here to look after the barbecue.”

Rotary event planner Julie Carratt said the profits raised would go to a local charity.

“We try to send children from the charity to the Rotary events,” Ms Carratt said.

“There's a lot of good kids out there and I think a lot of adults forget they were kids once.”

The Australia Day event earned $200 and more than 80 sausages and 30 burgers were cooked.

“It's about time we started celebrating Australia Day,” Ms Carratt said.
