Community relationship goes the extra mile

A RELATIONSHIP spanning more than a decade was honoured this week between Blue Care Dalby and the Dalby Leagues Club.

The Leagues Club, which acts as a training space and social hub for Blue Care clients, received a certificate of appreciation for its years of support on Tuesday.

Manager Wayne McKenzie said the club has formed a special relationship with Blue Care clients during the years.

"We are always happy and pleased and proud to have them here,” he said.

"They come here regularly as members and we quite often pick up some of their clients individually with our courtesy bus.”

Support ran both ways as Diehards president Tom Kelly and Devils president Tim Hart teamed up to provide a group of footy-loving locals with club jerseys and training gear.

Blue Care's Tuesday sports group will now proudly wear Dalby's maroon and blue at their monthly exercise sessions at the leagues club.

Grahame Smith regularly attends the sports group and has been a supporter of rugby league in Dalby for many years, fondly known as 'Chief' to the Leagues Club team. Mr Smith was excited to receive training gear from the club and said he will wear it every training session.
