Member for Gympie, David Gibson MP is inviting local residents of Gympie to become a part of this year’s Centenary celebrations of Red Cross in Australia.
Red Cross has helped shape 100 years of Australia’s social history. To celebrate its Centenary this year, Red Cross is publishing the stories of ordinary Australians whose lives have been touched by Red Cross as volunteers, members or beneficiaries of their services.
“100 years of Australian Red Cross service is worth celebrating,” Mr Gibson said.
“Over the past century, especially during times of war and disaster or through the blood service, the lives of most Australians have been touched by Red Cross.”
“Every Australian can take part in the Red Cross Centenary celebrations this year, by attending an event or sharing your Red Cross stories and photos.”
“I congratulate the Red Cross members and volunteers in the Gympie region whose everyday work makes such a positive, lasting difference to the lives of vulnerable people.”
“Red Cross is unique as an impartial and neutral humanitarian organisation that brings people together, irrespective of religion, nationality or any political difference they may have, to help those in need.”
Mr Gibson has accepted the challenge from Red Cross to be a part of the Big Cake Bake locally at the Red Cross Recycling Centre on Brisbane Road for a morning tea on Monday 25th August.
“I’m putting out the challenge to all our community leaders to join me at this event with their best baking effort and support our local Red cross.”
I look forward to joining local Red Cross people in our community to celebrate 100 years of humanitarian service to the nation,” said Mr Gibson.
