Police rocking-bike raffle for Leukaemia Foundation

IF you are around Gatton Thursday night for the Christmas festivities, make sure you put your hand in your pocket for a good cause.

A while ago a gentleman from Wacol donated a toy police motorcycle to Gayle Daetz of the Leukaemia Foundation.

Gayle said the bike was in good condition but needed a little bit of love and attention.

Never one to miss an opportunity to raise money for her beloved charity, she enlisted the help of the Gatton Community Shed whose members took to the task with aplomb and in no time, the old motorbike was looking spick and span.

The men from the shed enlisted the help of Warwick Mclean who supplied police stickers for the bike.

The rocker will now be raffled off at Gatton's Christmas festivities at the end of the carnival.

You'll be able to find the Leukaemia Foundation members near the ham and chook wheels at the Commonwealth Bank.

Your money will go towards fundraising to support patients and families across the Lockyer and Somerset Valleys.

Any who knows, you may go home with a beautiful police rocking-bike that will light up any child's eyes.
