Get in fast for next week’s Mayoral Prayer Breakfast

Tickets are selling fast for next week’s Mayoral Prayer Breakfast but if you miss out you can still support its cause – school chaplaincies in the Redlands.

Mayor Karen Williams said the popular annual event, to be held on Friday 29 August from 6.45am, was a great way for the community to make a difference by raising important funds for the chaplaincies.

“The breakfast is a great way to help the youth of Redland City by supporting our local school chaplaincy programs, which make a real difference to our students and schools,’’ she said.

“This support not only assists local schools, but it also has the potential to flow on to their families, helping the entire Redlands’ community.

“But with tickets limited for the breakfast and selling fast, you can still be involved by donating money through Council’s website.”

The key note speaker at Friday’s breakfast will be former NSW ambulance officer and police chief inspector Gary Raymond.

“Gary is inspirational, having dedicated his life to serving others,” Cr Williams said.

“During his career he headed up the elite NSW Police Rescue performing more than 1500 rescues, including 1000 motor vehicle accident rescues, 200 vertical rescues and 200 suicide crisis retrievals.

“He was on the front line for disasters such as the Granville train disaster and Thredbo landslide and his dedication to the force has been acknowledged through a number of awards, including an Order of Australia Medal.

“Today Gary works as a chaplain to the Police Post Trauma Support Group NSW, so he knows only too well the important role of chaplains in the community.”

The Mayoral Prayer Breakfast will be at Wellington Point’s Redlands Sporting Club.

The remaining tickets are available for $50 each or $450 for a table of 10. There are available online at www.rpac.com.au, by calling 3829 8131 or you can pick them up in person from the RPAC box office, 2-16 Middle Street, Cleveland.
