Ukelele group raises money for Rotary club
Peninsula ukulele group The Buskuleles played at the Red Carpet Day in Ettalong on September 15.
The group donated more than $80 earnt from busking to the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water.
Buskuleles spokeswoman Ms Kerrie Pochroj said Rotary was fundraising for Coast Shelter and, in particular, for the two shelters on the Peninsula.
On the first Saturday of every month the Buskuleles can be heard busking at Deepwater Plaza from 10am to 12noon.
Ms Pochroj said the shoppers were generous with their compliments - and their donations.
"We use the proceeds to support our ukulele groups, our free monthly community strumalong and various charities,'' she said.
"Our desire is to give to worthy causes as we hear about them. We will soon be supporting a Ukes Against Cancer event at Fairhaven."
The group of six formed in June 2016 and have been taking their ukulele and singing to the streets of the Peninsula ever since.
The group can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
