Outback Links ‘Spirit Raising’ Trip

Extended opportunity

Dear President and Members of 9640                                                                                    Birdsville

Having done similar voluntary work out west in recent years Heather and I highly recommend the experience offered by the Outback Links ‘Spirit Raising’ trip. We liken it to Project Volunteer projects traditionally done overseas but in this case within Australia and we are proud to have registered for consideration as volunteers.

Our NextGen Club Tag Along Tours and voluntary work supporting Royal Flying Doctor Service at Mt Isa and at the new Charleville hangar have been a big part of our recent Rotary life.

In the past 3 years NextGen  have also represented the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the Birdsville Raceweek Carnival held on September 1st  to 3rd  this year. We run a large catering marquee selling cooked steak, sausage, egg, bacon, mushroom, onion, BLT and water and soft drinks. We bring everything in refrigerated trucks and rely on volunteers to run the stall located close to the Pub within the food court. After the races on Friday and Saturday the crowds head for us at the centre seeking quality burger food at reasonable prices.

The extended opportunity is that you may wish to travel to the Birdsville races, and then travel on exploring the amazing western Queensland outback to arrive back at Charleville to take up the wonderful Outback Links project starting 18th September.

We are seeking extra voluntary help with the Royal Flying Doctor Service Catering Marquee run by NextGen especially on the Friday and Saturday evenings for a few hours. It is a magic experience within a magic venue on the edge of the Simpson Desert.

If you seek more information please call Heather and Ian on 0427 330 966 or ian.yarker@gmail.com
