Barbecue trailer to help raise funds well into future

The Knights of The Southern Cross Mount Barker/Strathalbyn Branch successfully used their new barbecue trailer for the first time, out the front of Vinnies in Mount Barker.

It will help them be more mobile and pro-active, when doing fundraising or providing sausage sizzles and steak sandwiches to emergency service volunteers or people congregated in an approved safe zone facility during a disaster.

The group's motto is "Christian Compassion in Action", and it raises funds for local needs, support education and aged care.

A successful grant application helped them buy the purpose-made trailer which will last for many years of fundraising for community service works to come.
