Beds for Bush Kids


​'Beds for Bush Kids' is a fundraising initiative of the Longreach School of Distance Education (LSODE) Parents & Citizens Tourism Committee. The initiative   seeks to assist isolated families through the donation of  funds to help cover their children's accommodation costs to attend Minischool.

With the end to Queensland's prolonged drought far from sight, the P&C Tourism Committee sought to find a means to provide financial assistance to families in this trying time.

This is where the idea for 'Beds for Bush Kids' was born.
