Sunshine Coast students donate time to family in need

Sunshine Coast Grammar School is uniting this weekend as part of the School’s Grammar Helping Hands Program in support of a local family.

The community group will be supporting a local Bloomhill Cancer Care client in need and will be gardening, mowing, painting and cleaning to deliver a backyard makeover at her Buderim home.

Since its inception in 2009, Grammar Helping Hands encourages students to show support and help local families in times of need. At Grammar, we pride ourselves on looking outward to others and serving our community with passion and purpose.

‘It’s all about showing just how fun and rewarding community action can be. We pride ourselves on this message here at Grammar,’ said Coordinator of Community Services, Mr Ben Princehorn.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School has been affiliated with Bloomhill Cancer Care for over 15 years. The Backyard Blitz is one of many initiatives the School and local charity join forces for to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need a ‘helping hand’.

Over 30 dedicated students have signed up for the Blitz and are looking forward to the opportunity to get involved in a community project.

Through giving their time and energy, students throughout the School develop a strong sense of community engagement and build empathy for those less fortunate. The Backyard Blitz is a great opportunity to connect with our community, have fun with friends and make a real and meaningful difference in the life of someone in need.
