Dalby blokes raise a truckload for charity

Thu, 2016-12-29 16:47

A couple of blokes and a truckload of ply wood is all it takes to raise money for a good cause.

Black Dog Institute, Lifeline and the St Vincent de Paul Society shared in almost $7000 which was donated by Peter Smiles from Dalby Home Hardware last week.

Mr Smiles sold more than 1000 sheets of ply wood after it arrived at the hardware store on a semi-trailer from Weipa.

"Ausco had a lot of ply and wondered if we could take it off their hands,” he said.

"We decided to donate 100% of it to charity.”
