The Forest Lake Crochet Group and knitting group could not stop smiling at their first meeting of the year held at the Durack Inala Bowls Club. The group was delighted to start the year with lots of laughter knitting and donating money to important causes including the Queensland Institute Medical Research (QIMR).

President Sue Gibbons was pleased to present QIMR community fundraiser officer Adrieanne Hallcup a cheque for $600 on behalf of the club.

Sue said it was great that for the fifth year in a row that they could donate to this worthy institution that does life-changing research. QIMR is a world-leading medical research institute that researches hundreds of diseases and conditions within Cancer Research, Mental Health & Neuroscience, Infection and Inflammation, and population health in more than 60 specialised laboratories.

“QIMR are currently undertaking research about mosquitoes and related diseases, and with Forest Lake having a real issue with mosquitoes I am pleased we can invest in research that will also help our residents.

“Myself and my ladies know our donations will go a long way to also helping members in our community and broader humanity,” Sue said.

“I would like to remind readers that we have a box at the entrance of Woolworths at the Forest Lake Shopping Centre where donations can be made. 

“The more wool we have the more items we can make and change the lives of people for the better.”

The Forest Lake Knitting group meets every Thursday between 9am-12pm at the Inala Durack Bowls Club.  To join, or if you have any questions, please contact Sue Gibbons at suzannegibbens@gmail.com
