Christmas at Andy's Roadhouse has been supporting Ingham local charities for the past 26 years or more by holding a fundraiser at the Roadhouse every November. There is lots of local entertainment, raffles, BBQ and licenced bar and Santa Claus calls in on his way past to visit. He joins in with the Carols Sing-a-long and gives all the littlies some chips and lollies.
In 2019, the Blue Care Ingham Community Care was the recipient of the proceeds of the evening. They have up to 19 carers' cars that service the community, going to their clients homes and helping with their personal care and meal preparation as well as social activities either in the home or the community.
Andy and his committee decided to help the carers with their job by supplying a First Aid Kit customised specifically for their needs in caring for their clients.
Gloria Buffa presented Blue Care Ingham Community Care Nurse, Lesley La Spina, with the kits on October 22, 2020.
“It has been a great privilege for Andy Barra, Bronwyn Gileppa and myself to be able to help the community in this small way”, Gloria Buffa said.
Sadly, 2020 and COVID-19 has brought a big change to our lives and the way events are to be held. This being said, it is sad to inform the community that the 2020 Christmas at Andy's Roadhouse had to be cancelled.
Andy and his committee would like to give special thanks to the performers, volunteers and community for their continued support.
Andy is looking forward to having a big celebration to bring back the 'CHEER' in 2021. He will see you all then.
