TODAY: free community barbecue against domestic violence

UPDATE: Event has been moved indoors to the Jimboomba Community Hall due to poor weather.

Logan City Council and Endalldv are hosting a free community sausage sizzle on Monday November 22 from 11:00am – 12:30pm to create awareness for domestic violence and unveil the park’s new Endalldv bench at Rotary Park in Jimboomba.

Guest speakers at the event will include Endalldv charity founder Leith Erikson, Jimboomba officer in charge Peter Waugh, Division 9 councillor Scott Bannon, and Division 1 councillor Lisa Bradley.

Cr Bannon said the lunch would be an informal event that everyone in the community was invited to attend.

“The more the merrier,” he said.

“We focus on all victims of DV – we’re not gender-specific or age-specific; we want to include everyone so everyone gets help.

“It’s a good chance for everyone to catch up and have a talk.”

Cr Bannon said about 150 people are expected to attend the lunch including members from the rotary club, Quota, church groups, sporting clubs, and councillors from Logan, Ipswich, and the Scenic Rim.

The Endalldv bench in Jimboomba would be multicoloured to help raise awareness for all victims of domestic violence.

“November 22 is the annual Endalldv day, so we’re doing a bench to coincide with the day,” Cr Bannon said.
