Volunteers lend a hand for tradies

GALLERY: HALT Save Your Bacon breakfast

VOLUNTEERS from the Rotary Club of Bendigo Sandhurst were busy cooking up a storm at the HALT tradie breakfast.

Rotary spokeswoman Patti Cotton said a group of about 12 volunteers helped cook and serve the tradies bacon and egg rolls.

"Rotary is a community based service club so when we're invited to be a part of the community we respond," she said.

Ms Cotton said the HALT breakfast was a fantastic event.

"If it provides the opportunity for tradies to get together and talk to one another then only good can come from it," she said.

"Getting breakfast and the goodie bags is just the means to getting the message out."

Ray Butler from Bendigo foodshare was also busy lending a helping hand at Tuesday's HALT breakfast event.

Mr Butler encouraged tradies to take home a food hamper filled with staples including breakfast cereal and other dried foods.

"If they don't need it then they can always pass it on to someone who does," he said.
