Caring fundraiser

CTC staff from across the South Burnett region, Gympie and Tin Can Bay raised $928 at a monster garage sale held at the annual CTC Day and through the sale of Our Favourite Recipes book.

This year, staff decided to donate the funds to Little Haven Palliative Care, a non-profit hospice that provides palliative care to terminally ill people and compassionate support to their families and friends in the Gympie and surrounding area.

Little Haven receives around 25% of its funding from the government annually. Other funds are raised through grants, donations and the fundraising efforts of a team of more than 100 volunteers.

"We hope that this contribution will assist with this year's fundraising efforts," CTC chief executive Nina Temperton said.

"CTC Employment Services provides various services in the Gympie area and this is one small way that CTC staff can give back to the surrounding community.

"We applaud the continued dedication and commitment of the Little Haven team and thank them for the invaluable services they provide."
