Local businesses help create mega raffle

FURTHER support for Queensland's flood affected farmers is being organised through a large raffle with a wide array of prizes donated from nearly 30 local businesses around Chinchilla.

The wheel barrow full of local goods and services is valued at over $2500 with all of the proceeds raised going to Sisters of the North.

Sisters of the North support flood affected families in North-West Queensland through the use of Live Vouchers, a financial aid system created to help the families and businesses of Cloncurry, Richmond, Julia Creek, Hughenden, Normanton and Winton areas.

Some of the prizes include a personal training package from JGPT, a 22 litre John Deere cooler from Vanderfield Chinchilla, a $100 voucher for Morticia's Madness Tattoo Studio, a salt lamp from Go Vita Chinchilla, a massage voucher from Emberdune Natural Therapies plus many other handy farm supplies, beautiful gifts and generous vouchers.

Tickets are two dollars each or three for five dollars and can be purchased from Chinchilla Newsagents, Gleeson Quality Meats, Mensland, Petunias Fashions, Fuzzy's Bakery, Best Employment, Go Vita, Chinchilla Florist, Dawneys Bakery, Chinchilla Showcase Jewellers, Chris Welding and Steel, Farmers Market, the Bottlemart beside Woolworths, Amelia's Place, Acton Pharmacy, Your Pharmacy Chinchilla and Chinchilla Family Chiropractic.

The raffle will be be drawn at the Proston Showgrounds on Saturday, March 23 in conjunction with the charity auction and the winner will be notified by phone call or text.
