Woolworths helps out Men's Shed

THE Gracemere Men's Shed Association is used to helping the community, but yesterday Gracemere Woolworths manager Richard Henry helped them out by donating a gift voucher valued at $100.

The voucher will be used to provide food for a function the group will hold this Saturday to welcome the president of the Queensland Men's Shed Association, Graeme Curnow, as well as other special guests from around the region.

The Australia-wide organisation allowed men to make new friends, learn and explore workshop skills and become involved in the community.

President of the Gracemere group, Paul Devine, said he was grateful for the donation.

"It will make things a lot easier," Mr Devine said.

Mr Devine said the function would include a presentation from Mr Curnow, as well as some speeches and a lunch.

Mr Devine said they desperately needed more members and encouraged anyone interested to come along.

Mr Henry said he was happy to help out a really good cause.
