The Bundaberg community has shown it can rally for its neighbours, taking out the top honour in the Rotary Lodge Naming Rights Challenge.

Tricia Cross from East Bundaberg Rotary, Lindsay Cunneen from Sunrise Rotary hold the Bundaberg bedroom sign, deputy chair of the Bundaberg Health Services Foundation Marilyn King, Erica Murree from Biggenden, chair of the Wide Bay Hospital and Health Board Gary Kirk and Foundation member Cr Lynne Forgan represent the towns in the Rotary Lodge Naming Rights Challenge.

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

The challenge ended on September 30, and the results were revealed at a special open day at the Lodge on Saturday (November 3).  Mundubbera retains its second spot while Biggenden moves up to third, Gayndah moves up to 4 and we welcome the Monto as a new bedroom name

The final result was:

Bedroom 1: ……………. Bundaberg ……………….. ($8481)

Bedroom 2: ……………. Mundubbera …………….. ($6267.87)

Bedroom 3: ……………. Biggenden ……………….. ($4486.79)

Bedroom 4: ……………. Gayndah ………………….. ($4392.37)

Bedroom 5: ……………. Monto …………………….. ($4147.59)

Congratulations must also go to the other towns which fundraised and these are Eidsvold with $3902.07, Mt Perry with $1694.62, Gin Gin with $780, Childers $50 and Agnes Water $20.

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

The Naming Rights Challenge is now underway again and will run through until September 30, 2013.

“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 and has been a home-away-from-home for 428 people since the doors opened in March 2011.
