A small school Parents and Citizens Association with a big heart is making a difference in the lives of school students, one delicious sausage on bread at a time.
The Gleneagle State School P and C has made more than $2000 out of their ‘Snag and Go’ drive through sausage sizzles since they started the monthly initiative on Father’s Day.
When the Beaudesert Bulletin stopped by for a snag, Ironbark Gardens, which is next door, drove in for six sausages on bread. They had already driven through three times that morning.
P and C President Katrina Wright said the drive through BBQ, which is in the school car park from 7am on the first Saturday of each month, had taken off.
“We thought it was something different and everyone loves a Bunnings snag, so we figured why not go one better and do a drive through ‘Snag and Go’?” she said.
“It was a bit hard with Covid, but we thought we’d do it outside, with Covid safe measures including the check in and mask wearing, so we weren’t too impacted.”
She said community support had been key.
“We can’t thank the community enough – they’ve been our biggest supporters and there have even been donations from people who’ve had breakfast already but think it’s a great idea to keep coming through.
“We’ve had a lot of repeat customers, like Ironbark Gardens, and the continuous support from customers every month, to have regulars, is massive.”
Ms Wright said the support helped local students.
“We’ve made about $2000 across three sausage sizzles and were able to donate to make our swimming program cheaper for the parents, we donated for equipment and we donated to help with the dance program,” she said.
“Everything our P and C does is for the kids.”
The next Snag and Go is 7am, Saturday 4 December.
