Pharmacy shoppers back Men’s Shed
Thanks to the support of local shoppers and The Oakey Pharmacy’s Community Heroes program, the Oakey Men’s Shed has received a $500 donation to continue its valuable work in the local community.
The donation is part of the Community Heroes program which allows pharmacy shoppers to give a token of support to the community group of their choice.
The group which had the most tokens would receive the top donation with the two runner-up organisations receiving $300 and $200.
The Oakey Pharmacy’s Nathan Jervis said the program is a great way to let the community decide which group should get the donation.
“This way our customers get to decide how the funds to the community,” he said.
“The Men’s Shed is a well deserved winner.
“I love the Men’s Shed.
“I imagine I will be a member one day.”
Oakey Men’s Shed treasurer Stephen Clarke said the donation brings a much needed boost to their kitty.
“This will really help us,” he said.
“We will use it to buy consumables and supplies.
“We currently have a long list of items we have been requested to make.
“It really helps us keep going.”
The donation for $300 will go to the Girl Guides with the Oakey Information Centre to receive a $200 donation.
The Community Heroes imitative runs every six months.
