Local phonebook keeps giving

THE Mareeba Blue Care Phone Book has officially been delivered to every house in the Mareeba Shire, not only helping locals find their right contact but also helping Blue Care continue to service the region’s elderly and disabled.

Tablelands Community Care, Care Co-ordinator Emily Cowen has received a cheque from BlueCare Phonebook publisher Leigh Robinson from donations made through the popular phonebook.

The phone book is one of the biggest fundraisers for the organisation, with publishers Leigh and Rhonda Robinson recently presenting a $3000 cheque to Blue Care.

Each of the 8,400 books distributed has a return envelope with a fundraising letter as well as details to make a direct donation online.

Mr Robinson expressed the importance of having not only a local phone book but also donating to BlueCare.

“When we first started publishing the book, we looked around to see which charity would be a worthy charity to be represented in both the Mareeba and Atherton towns,” he said.

“The obvious answer was BlueCare because they operate everywhere to get to anyone who needs it.

“So that’s why BlueCare has the naming rights of the telephone guide and people understand that they are supporting and donating to the organisation with this book.”

To purchase a BlueCare Phonebook, visit any newsagency in Mareeba or Far North Office Choice at 1 Jack Street, Atherton.
