Supporting Fitzroy Community Hospice through Melodies and Compassion

Rockhampton’s cherished Carols by Candlelight event is set to resonate with more than just festive cheer this year.

Mayor Tony Williams announced that the proceeds from this heartwarming tradition will grace the Fitzroy Community Hospice with much-needed financial support, aiding in the creation of a serene landscape at their upcoming Agnes Street facility.

The initiative, spearheaded by local volunteers and community efforts, signifies a profound grassroots movement. Mayor Williams expressed his delight in the collaboration, emphasising the pivotal role this contribution will play in facilitating the hospice’s landscaping costs and highlighting its significance within Central Queensland.

A Symphony of Giving Back

Fitzroy Community Hospice, established by passionate locals in early 2021, stands as a beacon of altruism, aiming to provide comprehensive palliative care without financial burden.

Dr Vicki Richmond, Chair of the Hospice, expressed gratitude for the opportunity to increase awareness and garner support for their cause through the Mayor’s Carols by Candlelight.

Two enchanting evenings await Rockhampton residents at the Pilbeam Theatre on December 6th and the Music Bowl on December 9th.

The Pilbeam Theatre promises a mesmerising performance, with tickets available for purchase. Meanwhile, the Music Bowl concert, driven by donations at the gate, assures an immersive experience with local vendors and musical merriment.

Logistics and Community Safety

As the community gears up for these festive celebrations, organisers urge attendees to park sensibly, utilising designated parking areas to ensure safety.

A free shuttle service from CQUniversity will facilitate smooth transit to and from the Music Bowl, ensuring an evening of joyous melodies without logistical woes.
