Show care to those in need

SOMETIMES a small gesture goes a long way.

And when you're facing tough times, it's nice to know that someone is looking out for you.

Lifeline wants to show people who are struggling financially that the community cares, by providing free welfare meals in Maryborough tonight and tomorrow night.

Lifeline Fraser District general manager Paul Scully said people were not only invited to partake in the food, but could also have a cuppa and chat with any of the Lifeline volunteers.

The gesture, he said, was part of Anti-Poverty Week and was about helping people make connections in the community.

“Wide Bay is a region that is certainly at a disadvantage from a socio-economic point-of-view.”

Lifeline will hold sausage sizzles from 5.30pm to 8pm outside City Hall.
