Students from Centenary Heights State High School help raise money for the Toowoomba Hospice.
School Vice Captain Miss Emma Otto (who is also heavily involved with the Interact club at Centenary Heights State High School) said the school socials, free dress days and other exciting events were a great way of raising money for our school and charities “We are so happy to have raised $2,000.00 for the Toowoomba Hospice who provide wonderful care to the terminally ill in our local community. Thank you to all our students as we would not have been able to raise this money without their support”.
Miss Otto thanked Mark from the Hospice for his hospitality and tour “We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. They have a beautiful facility and perform such an amazing service for the community. We are very happy to have contributed!” Toowoomba Hospice promotions and fundraising manager Mr. Mark Munro said the Toowoomba Hospice is very fortunate to have strong school community support, and “This is shown in many ways, especially with the support from the Interact committee at CHSHS.”
Toowoomba Hospice is a not-for-profit, community facility, caring for people with a terminal illness and their families at no cost. This financial year the Hospice, (located in O’Quinn Street) needs to raise $1.3 million to keep the service running.
The Hospice is a local charity and the money raised locally stays locally to support local businesses, companies and individuals on the Darling Downs and Lockyer Valley.
