The small township of Mt Perry has shown it has a big heart when it comes to fundraising taking out the top honour in having a bedroom at Rotary Lodge named in its honour.

The Naming Rites Challenge was a fundraising initiative by the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation which manages the Lodge.

The challenge ended on September 30, and the results were revealed at a special open day at the Lodge on Saturday (October 22).

The final result was:

Bedroom 1: …………… Mt Perry …………………. ($9273.50)

Bedroom 2: …………… Mundubbera …………… ($5642.90)

Bedroom 3: …………… Bundaberg ……………… ($4988.10)

Bedroom 4: …………… Biggenden ………………. ($3638.75)

Bedroom 5: …………… Gayndah ………………… ($3395.55)

Congratulations must also go to the other towns which fundraised and these are Gin Gin with $1300, Monto with $801.55 and Eidsvold with $201.55

Foundation chairman Janet Tallon congratulated every community group and individual donor who had made a contribution to this challenge.

The Naming Rites Challenge is now underway again and will run through until September 30, 2012.

“This is a large project being undertaken by the Foundation and it needs ongoing support from the community to ensure the doors remain open for patients and carers in their time of need.’’ Mrs Tallon said.

“We already have towns fundraising for the next challenge which is fantastic and it shows the incredible support behind this project.

“Unfortunately illness or accidents can happen to anyone, at any time, and whether they are cancer sufferers, sick children, newborns, pregnant mothers, those needing surgery or medical care, this is an opportunity for people in the North Burnett and surrounding areas to help their fellow community members in their time of need.’’

The Lodge offers five bedrooms and shared dining, lounge kitchen, laundry and bathroom facilities.

Public and private patients using medical services at either Bundaberg Hospital, the Mater Misericordiae or Friendly Society Private Hospital and their escorts were welcome at the Lodge.

Patients who are eligible for the Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) accommodation payment will only pay $10 per person per night. Those patients or carers who do not receive the PTSS will be required to pay $40 per person.
