Sunrise Way has received a new mini-bus thanks to money raised at a community fundraising lunch hosted by Liz Wagner in her home in April, raising more than $15,000.

Sunrise Way CEO Wendy Agar said she was pleased to be able to show Liz the bus and talk to her about the difference it will make for the rehabilitation centre. “We provide an essential service to the community and are not fully funded, so fundraising activities are an important part of our activities,” Wendy said. “It’s because of the money raised at this event that we were able to buy the mini-bus, which will allow our clients to participate in learning, support, wellness and integration activities in the community, that are a critical part of their recovery.”

The bus purchased by Sunrise Way is second hand and cost $20,000.  All funds raised at the Liz Wagner lunch were put towards the purchase of this bus, with the remaining amount coming from other Sunrise Way fundraising activities.

Sunrise Way supports communities in regional and rural Queensland through helping individuals living with an addiction to rebuild their lives.
