Bush kids get involved in festival

TO celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Royal Queensland Bush Children’s Health Scheme, the Warwick branch has decorated a tree for Jumpers and Jazz in July.

Family health support worker Linda Cholawinskyj said the organisation was happy to get involved with the festival, along with their affiliated military unit, the First Field Regiment.

“Local children and families knitted scarves and coloured in happy faces for us to hang in the tree,” Ms Cholawinskyj said.

“The tree is in Palmerin Street and this is another part of Bush Children’s participation in the festival.”

James Petterson and Fiona Wilkins of the Australian Defence Force will perform as part of the Royal Australian Artillery Band of Brisbane, a 30-piece big band set to jazz it up from 7pm tonight at the Warwick Town Hall.

Ms Cholawinskyj said there will be a raffle drawn on the night with proceeds going to the charity.

“We will also have a bottle of port and port glasses being raffled and they will be drawn after intermission on the concert night,” she said.

Tickets to the concert and the raffle are available at Rose City Jewellers, Warwick Town Hall and online at www.jumpersandjazz.com.
