A PLAINLAND business is hosting a major military fundraiser this weekend and everyone is invited.

Military vehicles, bagpipes, authentic Australian Light Horse, and parachutists will all be the go on Saturday at Coast to Country Chiropractic to raise money for the SAS charity Wandering Warriors which supports wounded, injured and ill Australian Defence Force veterans,

A mega-morning tea will be held at 7 Maroske Road from 10am to noon as the Wandering Warriors get reader to tackle the 1,300km Brisbane to Canberra Mega-Challenge

Coast to Country Chiropractic owners, doctors Matt and Sharith Sippel will join the walkers for the walk and Matt said the event was his way of saying thanking the Army for the support provided during the Grantham floods.

"Both my mum and dad, as well as my younger brother and his family were in the thick of it," Matt said.

"Sharith and I want to 'pay it forward' and repay the army for helping my family recover after the flood."

Matt said they would also be donating their time and joining the mega-walk as the event's official chiropractors.

"We urge everyone in the Lockyer Valley to get behind the Wandering Warriors to thank the army as they prepare to walk south to Canberra," he said.

The Wandering Warriors will depart Brisbane's Anzac Square on Sunday 28 September 28 and finish at the Australian War Memorial on Thursday October 16 to coincide with the dedication of an SAS Regiment plaque.

Wandering Warriors CEO Audie Moldre said the Wandering Warriors represented veterans of Australia's military commitments of the past 50 years.

"We are concerned about the welfare of Australia's newest and youngest veterans and their families; those who have served in Rwanda, Somalia, East Timor, Iraq and particularly Afghanistan," he said.

"We work to raise funds for all wounded, injured and ill Australian Defence Force veterans, and their families, who have suffered as a result of their service."

Mr Moldre said they 'cared for the carers' by providing a strategic fundraising umbrella for charities too busy with the carer role to do their own fundraising.

"With the support of corporate Australia and the Australian community, the Wandering Warriors aim to raise badly needed funds for Wounded Heroes, Project Excalibur, the Commando Welfare Trust, Soldier On and the White Cloud Foundation," he said.
