Donations benefit first response

CAMBROON landowner Col Bryant has once again chipped in to lend financial support to Kenilworth First Response.

Bryant received a sum of money from the Gympie Motorcycle Club for allowing the use of his property for the Yamaha Sprint Cross in February.

And although times are tough on the land, Bryant graciously presented his cheque to Kenilworth First Response.

Gympie Motorcycle Club spokesperson Donna Jeremy was present when Bryant forwarded the funds on to Kenilworth First Response this Monday.

“This is the third year Col has made the donation,” Jeremy said.

“Col believes that every cent counts for this organisation as they are all volunteers from the area.”

Kenilworth First Response relies primarily on donations to offset the cost of vehicle they need to carry out their operations.

The organisation’s territory covers most of the Mary Valley area and it is frequently the first on the scene of an accident or distress call, especially given it can take 40 minutes for an ambulance to reach the remote area.

Gympie Motorcycle Club also threw its support behind the organisation, contributing $2000 in addition to Bryant’s donation.

With lives depending on Kenilworth First Response, Gympie Motorcycle Club and Col Bryant are making a difference to the community.
