Border Trust cooking up a good cause

BORDER Trust will host a fund-raising barbecue in QEII square on Anzac Day with proceeds going towards the creation of a headspace centre.

Headspace chief executive Chris Tanti recently confirmed a centre for young people dealing with mental illness would open in Wodonga in October.

The barbecue will be operated by more than 20 volunteers between the dawn service until after the Dean Street march, with bacon and egg rolls served from 6.15am.

Outgoing Border Trust board member Tim Farrah said the organisation wanted to place its role in the creation of a headspace centre.

He said the Albury RSL sub-branch had approved of the fund-raiser barbecue.

“They see the youth as being important and fitting in with what our service people do both past and present,” Mr Farrah said.

Aldi and Woolworths have donated food, Country Hope will supply barbecue trailers and Vietnam veterans will help.

The dawn service at the Albury War Memorial begins at 5.30am with the march starting at 9am.
