Red Cross Maryborough ran a successful fundraiser last month, raising approximately $1500.
Hosting the fundraiser night at the Maryborough Paramount Theatre, Red Cross Maryborough branch member Kerri Long said it was a “great night”.
“We raised approximately $1500 which will be distributed to the Australian Red Cross Headquarters in Melbourne and patient transport vehicles which we support here,” she said.
“We have two patient transport cars at the moment and they’re full everyday. They go to Melbourne, Bendigo, Ballarat and everywhere else — they have to travel outside of our shire.”
Ms Long thanked those who donated on the night of the fundraiser, and said new members are always welcome.
