North Queensland based Senator Ian Macdonald and LNP candidate for Kennedy Noeline Ikin will tonight (Friday September 4th, 2015) attend a charity dinner organised by the Mareeba District Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association.
This annual event raises substantial funds for charity and this years’ recipient of any funds raised will be the Mareeba hospital.
Ms Ikin said her family had a long association with the Mareeba Hospital.
“It is a wonderful Hospital and a great part the community and I am pleased that Senator Macdonald and I can be lending our moral support to the fundraising efforts,” said Ms Ikin.
Senator Macdonald said that it was a wonderful gesture form the Mareeba District Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association to organise this annual event to support community projects in the area.
“Fruit and vegetable growers often do it tough but it is wonderful to see the community spirit of the growers in organising this annual even for Mareeba charities,” Senator Macdonald said.
