On Monday 24th September 2018, Inala Community House Healthy Ageing Program (SkyLarkers) organised a Roast Lunch Fundraiser as part of our September Drought Fundraiser to help our Queensland farmers affected by recent drought.
From 11am to 12.30pm, the Roast Lunch Fundraiser was held at our SkyLarkers community centre (20 Skylark Street, Inala QLD 4077).
For $10 per person, we welcomed all our senior members and anyone from the community to join us in this meaningful fundraising event.
“It all started when our staff members had a great discussion with our senior program participants on how we can do our part and come together to raise funds for struggling Queensland farmers. So we came up with this ‘September Drought Fundraiser’ month-long campaign at our SkyLarkers community centre,” said our Community Engagement Manager Haley Kiata.
Throughout September, we had planned four mini drought fundraisers: Big Brunch (5th September), Tea Party (10th September), Crafters High Tea (20th September) and last but not least, Roast Lunch (24th September).
During each mini drought fundraiser, we set a goal and encouraged everyone to contribute as much as they can to the cause. Donations from friends, families and community groups were welcomed too throughout September.
Our ultimate goal was to raise $500 for 23,000 litres of much-needed water to help our farmers.

It was heart-warming to watch our participants coming together to discuss, care and make positive contributions to our community under a unified cause.
“It is important for us to show our support to our Queensland farmers especially in this time of need. We always make sure to support local produce when purchasing milk, eggs, fruits, vegetables etc. As a local community centre, Inala Community House is happy to be able to encourage our community to help and contribute productively as much as we can,” said our Community Engagement Manager Haley Kiata.
