Firies Want to Say Thanks

Article excerpt

DO you know the kind-hearted little girl who has touched the hearts of Rockhampton firefighters?

On Monday night a the girl, Hannah, went into the North Rockhampton Fire Station with two big plastic bags of homemade cookies, still hot from the oven.

She dropped off the cookies and a card but now the firefighters need your help to find her so they can say thank you.

The letter reads:

To our brave firefighters,

Thank you for all your hard work in keeping my home safe from the fires.

Hope you all keep safe so you can go home to your families.

Love from Hannah

P.S. Hope you enjoy the cookies, they're home made by me.

* If you can help, SMS The Buzz on 0408 309 261 or email (

Meanwhile, staff on duty in the medical ward at Rockhampton Hospital collected money to support the firefighters battling the Mt Archer blaze at the weekend.

They arranged for drinks and pizzas to be delivered to the hard-working firies and said Eagle Boys did them a great deal.

AWARDS? What awards?

When Rockhampton radio advertising accounts manager Jacki Miles visited Sydney this month for the Australian Commercial Radio Awards there was one major thing on her mind - the red carpet.

Jacki walked side-by-side with national funny men Hamish Blake and Andy Lee, who she said were incredible to meet.

"They were actually super nice in person, too. As was Megan Gale," Jacki said.

Jacki didn't win but was impressive, listed in the top three finalists for the Best Direct Salesperson out of all radio networks in Australia.

"I am pretty happy about that!" she said.

The party after the awards made up for any loss - Jacki also got to party and got happy snaps with Gale as well as with Ian "Dicko" Dickson and Ed Kavalee, host of TV Burp.
