Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Rock’N Rolling To Christmas

Get your best Christmas outfit ready, and begin the jingles, we’re having a rocking Christmas this November!

Tiny Homes Project are gearing up for their next iteration of fundraising events, leading us into one of the best Christmas celebrations around.

Legend Peter Tilbrook, a massive 60s and 70s musician, and lead vocalist of Masters Apprentice, is ready to rock the afternoon away, bringing his timeless classics and fantastic sounds all the way from Adelaide.

Brad Soboot will host the auction, with some massive prizes on offer, and the silent auction will be returning.

“Thanks to the sponsorship support of the Whitsunday Sailing Club, our last fundraising event for the Tiny Homes Project should be a winner,” said Sandy Clark, Fundraising Coordinator and Associate Board Member of not-for-profit Whitsunday Housing Company.      

“We are almost ready to start the build of four tiny homes for homeless women 55-plus in the Whitsundays under the guidance of volunteer Mark Thompson.

“It’s been a full-on year and a great effort from our local community banding together at so many important levels to make this possible.

“We continue fundraising for this pilot study as we move forward to develop a sustainable model for ongoing years as low budget rentals for this age group will continue to be an issue Australia wide”.
