Local phone guide helps community

A $5000 cheque has been presented to Blue Care and Respite Centre Atherton by the publishers of the 2022 Atherton Tableland Telephone Guide.

Leigh and Rhonda Robinson were able to boost the donation by $4000 this year due to donations sent in by recipients of the last local phone book. 

The couple choose to donate the money to the organisations due to the important work they do. 

Community Care Atherton travels 2000km every week, and together with the Respite Centre, provides 650 hours of care to more than 450 clients including the frail aged, people with dementia or a mental illness, and younger people with a disability.

Since the inception of the Atherton and Mareeba Phone Guides, $481,000 has now been raised for Blue Care on the Tablelands. 

The Atherton phone book sports toughwearing blue covers, and includes a Blue Care fund-raising letter with reply-paid envelope, an easy way to donate to Blue Care. 

Ten pages of maps covering all major Tableland towns are also included. More than 13,000 copies of the publication have been delivered to every household, business and farm in the districts of Atherton, Eacham and Herberton, with Georgetown district in the Gulf Country also included in the circulation area. 

Every phone number is listed in large, easy-to-read print, and there is a handy business guide included which provides a practical reference to Tableland enterprises. 

Additional copies are on sale for $4.40 at Office Choice Atherton, and Mareeba News.
