Bloomhill Cancer Help and Sunshine Coast Council will host a special ‘meet and greet’ event on Sunday, 21 October as the first step in transitioning the management of the Cotton Tree Markets.
The event follows the exciting announcement from the Sunshine Coast Council earlier this month that Bloomhill had been selected as the new managers of the Cotton Tree Markets.
Bloomhill’s General Manager, Mervat Thompson said Bloomhill was very excited and looking forward to supporting the local Sunshine Coast community and working closely with Council to ensure a smooth transition.
“We believe the meet and greet event is the first positive step in encouraging stakeholder involvement with Bloomhill as the new market managers and to help us develop the markets to ensure we meet the needs of all involved including the broader community of Cotton Tree,” Mervat said.
The event will be held in Cotton Tree Park from 1 to 2pm and will include a BBQ and an opportunity for stallholders to familiarise themselves with Bloomhill’s market management by networking with Bloomhill staff and volunteers and other stallholders as the first step to further enhance the market community.
Among the list of invited guests is local councillor Cr Jason OPray, Bloomhill patron and former Olympian Raelene Boyle, Bloomhill President Jenny Carroll, Bloomhill’s General Manager, Mervat Thompson, volunteers and current market stallholders.
“This will be the first time that many stakeholders will get to meet Bloomhill and we are hoping to build strong partnerships that lead to creating a fantastic, progressive market with a full-program of fresh new activities,” Mervat said.
Bloomhill Cancer Help is a local charity that provides support and assistance to those affected by cancer. Operated by a team of dedicated professional staff and hundreds of volunteers, Bloomhill offers counselling, transport to appointments, respite care and a range of complementary therapies and other practical help.
