At the end of 2018 the club supported the Wesley Mission Queensland Red Bag Appeal. Members were given red bags to take and fill with non-perishable food, toys, and other items suitable for less fortunate families over Christmas. Jo Mitchell, our Youth Service Director, managed the project on behalf of the club. She recently received this thank you from Wesley Mission:
Red Bag Appeal Donate Now

Together we provided $160,000 of food relief for Queensland families at Christmas


With your amazing support, our services distributed more than 3,200 bags via our services to needy families this Christmas.​

Thank you from ER staff

You helped our team at Emergency Relief Hub Fortitude Valley meet the needs of over 200 people a day in the Christmas period.
You helped our services at Carole Park, Logan, Beenleigh, Eagleby, Southport, Robina, Ipswich and Toowoomba give Christmas hope and joy to families in real need.
You helped these families who want to say 'thank you'...
“Thanks heaps for all your support at this time - it means a lot.”

“Thank you so much for your support this year. It's brightened up my Christmas and made a big difference in my family’s life."
