Doctors to don lippie for charity
HAVE you ever wondered what your local doctors or publican would look like with lipstick on?
Probably not, but in Biggenden this could be a reality as Blue Care ramps up its fundraising efforts of Liptember, which supports women's mental health.
Gale Aberdein has registered a fundraising team, Blue Care North Burnett and has extracted a promise from the doctors at Biggenden Medical Centre that if the team raises $500, they will pucker up for a day.
Liptember lipsticks are on sale at Blue Care and also at the Coffee Pozzee for $5.
Donation tins have also been scattered around town.
Ms Aberdein will also be hosting the 'Liptember Luncheon' at the Grand Hotel on Sunday, September 29 at noon.
Tickets are $20.
Prepaid bookings are essential and can be taken at Biggenden Bakery.
Bookings close September 22.
The luncheon will feature guest speakers discussing women's mental health, a fashion parade by Deb's Country Outfitters, a make up demonstration and multi-draw raffle.
And don't forget to wear your brightest lipstick-publican Stuart Toms will be.
To donate, visit liptember.com.au/donate and search for 'Blue Care North Burnett'.
