Help rescue icons instead of flowers for Acton's funeral

THE FAMILY of charismatic cattleman Graeme Acton has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service or the Royal Flying Doctor Service in his memory.

People can go to http://www.campdraft.com to donate online.

The Central Queensland cattle baron died in hospital on the weekend after a freak horse accident the weekend before.

The funeral service will take place at his home of Paradise Lagoons, at Fairy Bower, near Rockhampton, at 1pm on Monday.
