Annual Maleny-Kenilworth Road Walk raises funds for local Chaplains
In May this year, Member for Glass House Andrew Powell MP, completed yet another 38km walk along Maleny-Kenilworth Road from Little Yabba Creek in Cambroon to Maleny in a demonstration of his ongoing support for local Chaplains and his commitment to fix the road.
“The walk does seem to get tougher each year, but maybe that is just my age creeping up on me! I think it is fair to say it did take me a few extra days to recover this time.
“I am thrilled that for the second year in a row, Chappy Becky from Maleny State School and Chappy Tressa from Conondale joined me for the entire journey which goes to show how committed they are to what they do,” he said.
Mr Powell is pleased to report that this year the walk raised a total of $1000 that will be split between the Conondale and Maleny State Schools. In addition to a donation from Mr Powell’s electorate allowance, smaller donations were also received from several community members.
“This annual walk forms such an important part of my ongoing agenda for Glass House as it reinforces my unwavering support for our Chaplains but also demonstrates my commitment to secure funding to fix the Maleny-Kenilworth Road,” Mr Powell concluded.
