Volunteers are urgently needed to help produce and sell the iconic Strawberry Sundaes at the Ekka – all in the name of lifesaving medical research.
The Common Good requires over 2,000 volunteers across the 9 days of Ekka to support this Ekka tradition and raise funds to save lives. The charity needs 500 more people to volunteer to fill all the shifts. Ekka is on from 7th to 15th August.
Every dollar profit funds research across heart disease, lung disease, dementia and mental health.
All that’s required is 5 hours of your time at one shift during Ekka, generally start times are either 7am, 11.30am or 4.30pm. You get free entry to the show, as well as a free strawberry sundae to top it all off.
“It’s a fun way to volunteer – everyone’s full of smiles, and at the end of it all you will have made a significant contribution to advance medical research.” The Common Good CEO Michael Hornby said.
The iconic Ekka Strawberry Sundaes return to Brisbane for the Royal Queensland Show this August for the first time in two years as The Common Good serves over 120,000 ice creams in their flagship event to support medical research.
