Concert to celebrate community services

SOUTH Burnett Peace of Mind is planning to give to the community this Christmas.

A Christmas concert will be held in Kingaroy's Memorial Park on Friday December 7.

Peace of Mind founder Rhonda Trivett said it would be a big night.

"I believe every year, it's great for the families to have a Christmas thing, but then I thought, they're going to have a home to go back to,” she said.

The event will provide an opportunity for all of the service providers in the South Burnett, such as Centacare Community services and Graham House, to have a stall and reach out in the community.

"We are going to get people off the streets,” Ms Trivett said.

The event will run from 5.30pm until midnight and there will be rides, community involvement and foods galore.

South Burnett artists such as Amber Goldsmith and Arthur Nettlefield will be performing carols at the event.

The event will celebrate the hard work the South Burnett service providers does over the year, and provide a Christmas event where everyone is welcome, Ms Trivett said.

All of the South Burnett services are trying hard to provide support and meet the needs of the community, she said.

South Burnett Peace of Mind currently needs volunteers to step in as a secretary and treasurer for at least until the end of the year.

"Our current team is unwell, and I don't want them to fully burn out,” Ms Trivett said.

"We're looking for people to join up and help us out for the rest of the year.”

To book a stall at the Christmas concert, or to help out South Burnett Peace of Mind, contact Rhonda on 0447 815 095.

Centacare community services are also looking for workers and volunteers.
