A good sign for local charities

An ingenious idea by the Goonellabah Rotary Club to help people find businesses in the South Lismore Industrial Estate has yielded $2000 for two local charities.

Erected 12 months ago on the corner of Krauss Avenue and Three Chain Road, the advertising board makes it easy for people to navigate their way around the maze-like industrial estate and find the business they are looking for. Businesses pay $250 a year for the privilege of being on the board, with all money going to local charities.

Just before Christmas the Goonellabah Rotary Club handed over its first donation $1000 to Our Kids and $1000 to the Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

We had a fair response last year but we hope its even better this year, said Goonellabah Rotary Club president, Greg Andersen. Were hoping the sign will be worth $8000 a year to local charities on an ongoing basis. And its tax deductible for any business who wants to join up.

For more information on advertising your business during 2007 phone Ross Loebel on 6682 4840.
