Walk for Chaplaincy Fundraiser

Sunday 26 May, 1.30pm
Meet at J.C. Slaughter Falls, Mt Coot-tha

Help raise much needed funds for Chaplaincy by participating in the Mt Coot-tha walk on Sunday 26 May! We'll meet in the car park at JC Slaughter Falls at 1.30pm before walking to the summit and back. A free sausage sizzle will be available at the end.

What to bring: walking shoes, sun hat, sunscreen, water bottle and a donation (towards the work of the Chaplains at Indooroopilly SHS and QLD Academy of Science, Maths and Techonology at Toowong).

If you can't make it to the walk, but would still like to support the work of our Chaplains in schools, we will be taking up a retiring offering at TUC on Sunday 26 May. Please get in touch with Clare for more information: c_hankamer@hotmail.com
