Helping install a shade sail in Hervey Bay

MUNDUBBERA Burnett Lodge has helped installed a shade sail in an outdoor area at the Hervey Bay Special School.

The lodge and the Sandy Strait Sizzlers, with the help of Hand Heart Pocket the Charity of Freemasons Queensland, contributed $10,000 towards the shade sail project which cost $13,000.

Mundubbera Burnett Lodge Secretary Peter Keller said it had been fantastic to help the school with the project, which meant students and teachers could enjoy the new space while being protected from the sun.

"The new space is such a great addition to the school and will enhance the students' school experience,” Mr Keller said.

"We have such great weather in Queensland so it would be a shame not to spend more time learning outdoors.”

About 100 students with disabilities are enrolled at the school, with each expected to make use of the new space.

Hand Heart Pocket CEO Gary Mark thanked the lodge.

"In the last 10 years Mundubbera Burnett Lodge in conjunction with the Sandy Strait Sizzlers have donated over $80,000 to various charities in the Wide Bay region giving countless individuals a hand,” he said.
