Taabinga Rotary members took the opportunity of a visit to the Kingaroy Ambulance Station on Wednesday evening to divvy up the profits from the recent Bookarama.
Club president Paul Laurentiussen presented a cheque for $3000 to Kingaroy Ambulance officer-in-charge Travis Cramb.
This will be put towards the Kingaroy Local Ambulance Committee’s current project to purchase an $11,000 training dummy, known as a “MegaCode Kid”.
The advanced training mannequin will allow paramedics to practise life-saving skills for child patients.
Mr Laurentiussen also presented a cheque for $3000 to John Box to go towards his granddaughter’s charity fundraising effort, “Violets Of Tomorrow”, for children’s cancer.
A third amount of $3000 will be put aside for Taabinga Rotary’s ambitious project to upgrade Kingaroy’s Town Common walking track .
