Beerwah Charity Sports
and Spring Carnival

by Cameron Outridge

Now in its 34th year of fundraising for the Queensland Cancer Fund this annual event is a real community effort with local organizations and many, many individuals involved in the planning or on the day of the Sports. Businesses in and around the Glasshouse Country area also give generous support through sponsorship of events on the program.

Every dollar raised by the Beerwah Charity Sports and Spring Carnival to be held on Saturday August 21 is given to the Queensland Cancer Fund. This local event is said to be the longest running fundraiser (independently run) for the cause. The members of the Charity Sports Committee believe that every dollar raised counts in the search to find a cure for Cancer. Cancer touches everyone’s lives in some way whether it be ourselves or someone close to us. The Queensland Cancer Fund as you probably know receives no government funding so everything we can do matters.

There will be something for the whole family at the Beerwah Charity Sports and Spring Carnival. Horse events, tug-o-war, pet parade, art and craft stalls, vintage and classic cars and motorbikes, antique engines, plenty of food and entertainment, tractor trek, a fashion parade, MacDonald’s Farm, dog ute jumping competition, displays of all kinds, fireworks plus much, much more.

Entry for the day is only $2 adults and 50c kids. So come along to Beerwah Sports Ground, Roberts Road, Beerwah. It is easy to find with plenty of parking. The day kicks off at around 10am and finishes with a bang at 7pm.
