WE are writing to thank Jimboomba Times and the Jimboomba community for supporting McHappy Day, the largest annual fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities, in 2018.

Jimboomba helped us celebrate 27 years of McHappy Day and raise more than $4.8 million for RMHC nationally.

These donations ensure Aussie families get to stay together while seriously ill or injured children are in hospital.

All over the country, communities local bucket brigades, scout groups, emergency services as well as sporting and TV personalities visited McDonald’s restaurants to help make a difference.

We want to personally say a big thank you to everyone who got involved, making generous donations that helped McHappy Day raise more money than ever before.

Fundraising efforts like McHappy Day are vital and ensure RMHC can be there for families with seriously ill children when they need it most.

With so many Aussie kids requiring treatment, every donation goes a long way to keep families together in their toughest times. You can continue to support families in need by donating to rmhc.org.au all year round. Thank you again for all your help on McHappy Day.

NEW areas are being built but new police stations are not.

There are no police stations at Pimpama, Yarrabilba or Logan Reserve.

When a new area is built, something must be done to keep residents safe.

By the time police come from nearest station, (criminals) are long gone.

REAL tough of them to hit an 89-year-old. Wait until a real man catches up with them and teaches them some manners. Then they will understand what respect is all about.

FAR too much crime happening. Harsher penalties are definitely needed.
