A sign of good fortune

Stuart Coch and Ross Loebel from the Rotary Club of Goonellabah want businesses in the South Lismore Industrial Estate to sign up and advertise in support of local charities.

Members of the Rotary Club of Goonellabah have devised an ingenious way to raise money for charity and help local businesses make extra dollars at the same time.

Rotarians recently erected a brand new advertising board in a prominent position on the corner of Krauss Avenue and Three Chain Road in the South Lismore Industrial Estate, and now theyre waiting for businesses who want extra exposure to sign up.

For just $250 a year businesses can promote themselves on the board, and given that the industrial estate is a bit of a maze, its a great way to ensure people can find your business with ease.

Of course, motorists will also be more inclined to shop at your business when they realise all those advertising dollars are going directly to local charities Our Kids and the Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

The Rotary Club is committed to creating community projects that help local businesses and charities, said Rotarian Ross Loebel. This sign is perfect because it does both.

A cross referencing system on the board allows people to find the exact location of the business theyre looking for and motorists can safely pull up thanks to a spacious parking bay.

Ross is now out canvassing for more companies to join the initiative. If youd like to find out more or sign up, phone him on 6682 4840.
