Gaythorne organisation Carinity thanks its valued volunteers



Volunteers are the lifeblood of not-for-profit groups.


Residents to areas surrounding the Enoggera Close Training Area are warned that it is a Defence live firing range and to expect periods of heightened noise volume. Defence training includes firing practices with live ammunition, explosives, simulation devices and lasers that generally occur daily between 0700h – 1600h. Night time practices also occur and are generally completed before 2200h. During these core operating hours, residents in the surrounding areas may experience louder than normal noise levels. This could be due to a change in weather conditions or wind direction, or due to the type of munitions or simulation devices being employed to achieve a training outcome. Defence now has the capability to notify residents of increased periods of noise volume on the training area via an SMS alert. These alerts are intended to advise residents of an increased level of forecasted training area noise over a prescribed period of time. If you wish to be included in this notification process, please contact range control on (07) 3332 7455 and provide your name and mobile number. For any other enquiries regarding the Enoggera Close Training Area, please contact the Enoggera Close Training Area, Range Control Officer on (07) 3332 7455. 02497

Gaythorne-based community care organisation Carinity has almost 300 volunteers across Queensland who support the delivery of our aged care, education, community, youth, disability and chaplaincy services. The hard work and dedication of the unsung heroes of Carinity – our volunteers, chaplains and supporters – were recognised at a special Thank You luncheon held at Toowong on August 23. The event, which also celebrated the generosity of our donors and acknowledged the 70th anniversary of Carinity, an outreach of Queensland Baptists, featured the presentation of awards to some of our outstanding contributors. Del Baxter, who has devoted herself to creating beautiful gardens at the Carinity Kepnock Grove aged care community in Bundaberg, was named the Volunteer of the Year. David Briddock, pictured above, a volunteer prison chaplain with Carinity’s Inside Out Prison Chaplaincy service for five years, was named the Chaplain of the Year. Alderley-based radio station 96Five is the Supporter of the Jill Patrick of 96Five Radio Year in recognition of granting Carinity air-time to spread the word about raising funds for our chaplaincy programs. Staff from Carinity Shalom, which provides maintenance assistance to Carinity sites in Rockhampton, Gladstone, Yeppoon and Mt Morgan, were awarded the Team of the Year award. If you would like to volunteer to assist Carinity and the people we support visit or phone 3550 3737. website:
