On 10th October – Matt Phillips sang some great songs including Sweet Caroline with the audience waving their hands and everyone singing along.  Richard was terrific on lead guitar, Colin played drums for 5 hours straight, (what a legend) and Ben did an amazing job on the Bass.  The event was peppered with entertainment from all genres which made it interesting and enjoyable.  Maryanne and Tara sung some great songs and Lyle jumped in and played guitar as well.  Daveena recited some original indigenous poetry which was very good.  The whole evening was terrific and everyone got into the spirit and had a go.  Carola, Margaret & Billie also got up and sang a few numbers.  The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone had a fabulous time. (apologies if I’ve forgotten anyone)

Just 4 Kids Childrens Charity

We have supported the charity during the past 6 years and are actively involved in the motor trails with Paul being the “Cookie Monster”.  He is responsible for feeding everyone on the Motor Trail which is a big job.  J4K work hard to raise funds for those less fortunate and in particular the indigenous children in remote areas.  The motor trails are fun and also support this worthwhile cause.  So at the next event, pick up a brochure and check it out.
