REH Cork Club calls for volunteers for its annual Good Friday Appeal collection
The Royal Exchange Hotel's Cork Club is shaking up its Good Friday Appeal tin collecting this year, with designated donation points to be set up in Traralgon.
In previous years, volunteers would collect from vehicles at the Princes Highway and Breed Street intersection. However club president Roy Arnold said the new arrangements are a safety measure.
"It's considered a bit dangerous for people to be collecting safely at that intersection," Roy said.
"It's all about the safety of people who are volunteering. Police have said there's a lot of heavy traffic coming through Traralgon now, so rather than collecting at that intersection, we've come up with the option of collecting at a few sites just off the road."
