Raffle of guitar for kids

A GUITAR signed by some of the top performers at the Gympie Music Muster and Tamworth Country Music Festival will help Chatsworth State School students keep their cool.

Over the last two years Chatsworth State School P & C Association has been raising funds to place air-conditioning in the school’s classrooms.

Situated beside the Bruce Hwy, traffic noise is a major problem for the school, especially in summer when windows need to be open due to the heat.

The one-off Maton guitar signed by the who’s who of country music talent in Australia will be raffled to help raise funds to provide the much-needed air-conditioning.

Chatsworth P & C president and the school’s Muster co-ordinator Loueen Sewell said among the big names to sign the guitar were Adam Harvey, Troy Cassar-Daley, Lee Kernaghan, Adam Brand, Luke O’Shea, Melinda Schneider, Jetty Road, McAlister-Kemp, Noll Brothers, Adam Kilpatrick, Kiss Chasey, Evermore and Steve Ford.

Gympie Girl Guides are helping sell tickets, with part of the raffle proceeds will go to help the Guides.

Only 2000 tickets, at $5 each, are available and the raffle will be drawn on August 28. Tickets are available through the Chatsworth School P & C and Melt Me in Mary St.
