Brady chips in for wood chopping

COUNCILLOR Graeme Brady won unanimous support from his colleagues yesterday to donate $1320 from his discretionary fund to promote a wood chopping championship at this year's Rockhampton Show.

The show will be held over the Queen's Diamond Jubilee weekend from Friday, June 8, to Sunday, June 10, and will feature the Queensland Underhand Championship in its wood chop section.

But Cr Cherie Rutherford had to withdraw her request to give $1000 to send a rugby league team from Rockhampton State High School to an indigenous festival on the Gold Coast because the school could not raise sufficient sponsorship for the trip.
