As the year comes to an end I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members for your support.
We are proud of our achievements as a voluntary, Not-for-Profit organisation, however none of it would be possible without your support.
It has been a challenging period for the Granite Belt with the drought, fire and COVID so I hope you all take time out over Christmas to recharge and spend time with loved ones.
The lucky shopper will continue from Saturday 5th until Monday 21st December when another 6 draws will happen with 1 X $500 and 5 X $100 ‘Why leave town cards’ will be drawn. The entry box will be located at Gracious Giving.
Winners will be notified by phone. These 6 prizes are donated by the Stanthorpe RSL.
