Fundraising efforts for schools in the Redlands electorate will get a much needed boost over the next few weeks thanks to State Member for Redlands Matt McEachan. 

Mr McEachan is donating 16 Weber Baby Qs to schools in his electorate as part of his new community ‘Get Grilling for your School’ initiative.  

“I’m excited to present schools with these prizes,” Mr McEachan said. 

“It gives them the tools to fundraise how they see fit, and creates a bit more excitement than giving a monetary donation,” Mr McEachan said. 

“Staff and volunteers work tirelessly to provide the best resources for school students through fundraising. 

“I encourage the wider community to support Get Grilling for their local school. You never know, yours could be the winning ticket!”

Redland Bay State School P&C President Paul Booker thanked Mr McEachan for his generous donation.  

“Matt has been involved with our P&C since his inception as a candidate and then our local Member and has provided us with some great practical and political support in that time.

“Even picking up a shovel and digging holes to help makeover our garden earlier in the year. This donation is yet another example of his service to our organisation and the wider community.

“We are hoping to use the Baby Q as a raffle prize leading up to Christmas, maybe at one of our presentation evenings to raise some additional funds for school projects in 2016.”
