The Toorbul & Donnybrook Pensioner’ Club hosted a lunch on 15 February at their hall to raise much needed funds for the local Toorbul Rural Fire Brigade. “They are very well respected in our small township of Donnybrook and Toorbul and we can’t thank them enough – there’s always one of them to help us when we need it.” said Jan Stephensen

Jan advised “there were 46 people came on the day and enjoyed a delicious lunch provided by the club members. They also bought raffle tickets, prizes for which were donated by Brooke Savige, Simone Wilson, Terry Young and our local Community Pharmacy.”

Entertainment was provided by Les Stephensen who plays guitar and sings “old” songs we all know, and Claire Stevenson who recited a poem depicting a Real Aussie. Geoff Fabila played a dodger i one - a pipe with a sliding inside and also played his guitar – a real treat. Then we were entertained by “Boom Baby” – well known musicians from Bribie. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. All of our entertainers donated their time for the day.

The club was able to add to our previously promised donations to make up to over $2500.
