Raise money for chaplains with a morning movie
THE ST John's Lutheran Ladies Friendship Circle are holding a movie morning to raise money for school chaplains in the South Burnett.
Joan Yappa from the Ladies Friendship Circle explains why school chaplains are in constant need for funding.
"We're raising funds for the South Burnett school chaplaincy, and the Central Australia missions,” she said.
"From what I can understand, chaplaincy is always needing funds, because they do so much work. Some of them provide breakfasts and morning tea to the children, so we just thought that we'd help towards their funding in these local schools.
"We do the occasional drop in to these chaplains, and as they've always asked for our support if we can help them in any way, we decided to do this movie morning.”
They will be showing a 2017 film called The Song Keepers, a story about an Aboriginal choir affiliated with the Central Australia missions.
"The movie is a true story about an aboriginal choir from central Australia who travel to Germany, singing songs taught to them by early missionaries. We asked the cinema if they'd bring it up for us, and they did,” Ms Yappa said.
The tickets will cost $10 for adults and $5 for students, and people can book through the local cinema.
"We hoped to make it affordable to most people. The price includes a morning tea that will be held at 9am, right before the movie at 10am,” Ms Yappa said.
"With the topic of the movie being religion-based, it's a good way to be social while also helping a helping a local cause.”
