Toowoomba School diverts fundraiser event to support those affected in Stanthorpe fires.

Mary MacKillop Catholic College together with major sponsor, Toowoomba Plastics and six other generous sponsors have been planning a Race Day at Clifford Park in Toowoomba on Saturday, 14 September in an effort to build community together with local families, staff and the wider community.

In light of the recent and devastating bushfires in Stanthorpe that have further impacted an already drought-stricken community, the College and its sponsors have selflessly diverted all funds raised to be distributed to those deeply affected by the catastrophic event that occurred over the weekend.  “Our neighbours down in Stanthorpe are currently battling with some tragedy and in the spirit of Mary MacKillop, we have to act on this and show our support” says Chris Gabbett, College Principal.

“We are quite fortunate to have the support of our very generous sponsors, and the turf club in Toowoomba have come on board too, doing what they can to help.”

Working together with sister school, St Joseph’s Stanthorpe, Mary MacKillop Catholic College will ensure that the funds raised will go directly to members of the Stanthorpe community who have been hit the hardest. Chris says “We know that many people in our wider community and right throughout the South East region have rallied around to send water to the district, which are unbelievable acts of kindness. The hope is that our fundraising can really hone in and make a difference to those who we’ve witnessed on the news losing everything, have property damage, have been displaced or just need a helping hand.”
