Bundaberg entertainer Debbie Robertson puts on a special musical tribute show and monthly outing to help lonely people who are socially isolated.
Debbie is a well-known identity around the local club entertainment circuit and her sweet-sounding voice is even more well known.
Although now not actively pursuing entertainment opportunities, Debbie is now involved in activities that bring a little sunshine into many people’s lives.
Over the years she was heavily involved in entertaining it came to Debbie’s attention just how socially isolated many people are.
“Speaking with people who attended my performances it was obvious that many of them were quite lonely, had limited social interaction and in many cases did not have their own transport,” she said.
“I developed an idea to help get people out of that feeling of isolation and out of their homes by organising monthly bus trip.
“We head to a variety of destinations travelling on a modern comfortable coach, with meals including home-made morning tea and I also present a musical tribute show.
“We also arrange accommodation when the trips are a bit longer and an overnight stay is required.”
Debbie said the day tours usually run from 7.30 in the morning to 4.30pm in the afternoon.
“Anyone interested in finding out more about these outings can contact me on 0409 496 776 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Many great and enduring friendships have been the outcome of these trips and I really enjoy the opportunity to bring groups together for an enjoyable shared experience.”
