Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project volunteers were thrilled to be given the opportunity to raise some funds through a nightly BBQ at the Tin Can Bay Summer Carnival.

“A few dollars each night added up over the two weeks and it was awesome to be part of the Showman community,” President Jess Milne exclaimed.

“We also ran our lucky numbers which helped fund our free tickets competitions and on New Years Eve I auctioned off the rights to cream pie me in the face which rose over $90 in donations.”

Carnival organiser Chris Colley from Colbridge Amusements always likes to leave something behind in a community other than great memories.

After seeing the dedicated hard working YAP team in action he didn’t hesitate to make a very generous donation of $500.

“It was a pleasure to be able to support the work of the Cooloola Coast Youth Activity Project,” Chris said.

The monies will be used to fund future activities and major equipment purchases such as audio equipment for the Sound of Teen Spirit concerts.
