Survived flood, bought the T-shirt
IT MIGHT have been a “tough week” but a little subtle humour should help turn the events of last month into a less harsh memory.
The brainchild of Kathy McLean and Ann Kirby, of McLean Images in Laidley, a series of T-shirts, bumper stickers and stubby holders are now on sale within Laidley and Forest Hill.
Forest Hill resident Karen Mitchell said the items could be overprinted to specify any of the areas affected by the recent floods.
“Local artist Trevor Salter has done the artwork for no charge and McLeans will print them at a much-reduced rate,” Ms Mitchell said.
“They will be sold in Laidley under the direction of Laidley Better Business, which will also determine where the proceeds are to be distributed.
“In Forest Hill, sales will be under the auspices of the Lockyer Valley Aged and Handicapped Association. All funds raised will be returned to the local communities.”
Ms Mitchell said other flood-affected areas around the state could take ownership of the items and use them for their own fundraising efforts.
Forest Hill post office owner Heather Drouin said the memorabilia would be available for sale at several outlets throughout the town.
