Southern Cross Association Poker Run
The 17th Southern Cross Association Annual Poker was run from 1 - 6 September. Over 400 bikers and pillions took part to make it a wonderful event. The run started at the Noccundra Hotel, west of Thargomindah, and over 5 days travelled through country Queensland and NSW to finish at Boonah. A cheque for $4,000 was presented to SBH Queensland on the last night with a further cheque being handed over once income and expenses from the run are finalised. Thank you Southern Cross Association for your continuing support over 17 years.
Westfield Carindale has chosen SBH Queensland to be its charity partner for 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2014/15.
Thank you to Westfield Shopping Centres for also giving us a grant to run several programs and purchase equipment for young children.
Minimise the risk of your baby having spina bifida
A simple vitamin called folic acid taken daily can make a huge difference to the risks of your baby developing spina bifida.
If you are in a high risk group (have any family history of spina bifida or other neural tube defect, have type 1 diabetes or take some anti-epileptic medication) then please download and read our You and Your Pregnancy brochure.This site is maintained by Bill Shead, the Information Officer & Manager of SBH Queensland.
