Virtual Car Parking at the Ekka - For a Good Cause

Planning to go to the Ekka Online this year?  How about a virtual car park?

The Rotary Club of Brisbane Mid-City is offering virtual car parks, with proceeds going to two very good causes.

“Rotary is a community service organisation and Ekka parking is our biggest source of project funds each year – except this year,” explains Brisbane Mid-City President, well known consultant industrial chemist Lisa Bateson.

“Two of the main causes we’ve supported for years are

  • education scholarships for disadvantaged students at Yeronga State High School, a really diverse community with 62 nations represented in their school population, and
  • support for the Springs of Hope Foundation in Kenya, started by amazing Queensland woman Jennifer Hughes-Bystrom to create a home for orphans she rescued off the street and that now gives vulnerable young mothers struggling the opportunity to become self-sufficient through vocational training.

“Up until this year, a generous local business has kindly allowed us to charge for parking at their car park near the Ekka.

“Faced with losing $5000 from our major annual fund raiser this year, we decided to offer virtual car parks.”

Help us by “purchasing” a $30 one-day park, $60 two-day park or $100 whole-of-Ekka park, just go on line at
