Free transport for mobility scooter users to Coast show
THOSE that need a little help getting around will be able to enjoy the upcoming Fraser Coast Show thanks to a free transport service organised by Ian Dinte.
Commonly known as the Character Man, the passionate local so far has individuals up to 95-years-old signed up to use the service with spots still available.
"I want to give the opportunity for everyone to enjoy the show," Mr Dinte said.
"It's people that otherwise might not have a chance to go."
The initiative is one of many ways Mr Dinte has helped residents in the community.
He has raised almost $50k for the Hervey Bay Special School to date and has no plans of stopping.
Dressed as a hippie and equipped with puppets, he will be at the Fraser Coast Show continuing his fundraising efforts.
His enthusiasm and desire to help has been recognised as he was crowned Fraser Coast volunteer of the year by Wide Bay Volunteers.
The show transport service will operate from both Hervey Bay and Maryborough on May 25.
