Cent sale to boost funds for victims

WHEN Cyclone Marcia hit, Diana and Clyde Wode's first thought was to help others.

For the past few weeks, the Rockhampton couple has been lending a helping hand through Anglicare to those affected by the cyclone.

Diana and Clyde felt the impact of the cyclone themselves, with a tree on their house and their shed destroyed, but the pair is putting their own problems aside.

They are busy preparing for the Anglicare Cent Sale and hope to raise $10,000 which will go straight to families in need.

"We're dealing with 400 people impacted from the crisis and two of our welfare agencies were damaged so we're working from one area now," Diana said.

"We've run out of funding for the time being and that's why I'm trying to get some cash."

Diana and Clyde, who have been helping Anglicare for 30 years, are hoping for a great community turnout on Sunday.

There are hundreds of prizes up for grabs from businesses across the region.

Diana is encouraging residents to come along and to buy even a few dollars worth of tickets at the cent sale, which will go a long way to helping others.

The Anglicare cent sale is on Sunday at Bauhinia House in North Rockhampton.
