Rockhampton students make difference on other side of world

ALL the way from the Rockhampton Grammar School, students like Alexandra Barlow and Rielly Stokes are making a difference on the other side of the world.

In the small village of Chainda, Africa, Emerald woman Alison Ray has established Our Rainbow House, a non-for-profit organisation which aims to support the community of Chainda in the care of their orphans and vulnerable children.

The latest fundraising effort, an art exhibition held by Grammar Global will raise money for Our Rainbow House and is to be held at the Rockhampton Grammar School on Sunday November 24 from 5pm. Entry will be by donation.

Money raised towards Our Rainbow House to help children of Chainda.

There will be an auction of all artworks on the day, with funds directed to the cause.
