Wearing Red paid off @ Day for Daniel

OVER $600 dollars was raised for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc last Friday. Schools and businesses across the Whitsundays dressed, decorated offices or ate food the colour red to raise funds to protect children and teach them how to be safe.  Ray White Whitsunday, Community Solution, Scallywags Child Care and Coles Cannonvale coordinated by Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre took part in the fundraising hosting a sausage sizzle at the Whitsunday Shopping Centre.

“People were very generous in donating and we got spread the child safety message which coincided with Children’s week” said community development officer Tamara Noble.

“I was not surprised at the number of businesses that came on board, as it is a responsibility of all locals to keep our children safe”.  Ms Noble said

Schools participated by encouraging students to wear red for a gold coin donation.
