Leona & Candice Pink Pedal Challenge

LeonaCandiceFrom the moment I heard about the opportunity to cycle through Vietnam and Cambodia, whilst fundraising for Breast Cancer Network Australia, I was ‘in’. What an awesome adventure this would be. Little did I know when I signed up, that the universe had other plans for me. I have been battling this cancer beast for two and a half years now, trying to live as ‘normal’ a life as possible, working, travelling, exercising … living! With training for my big adventure well under way and feeling on top of the world, the cancer beast, more aggressive than ever, has struck a debilitating blow. I am ‘shattered’ that I am forced to withdraw from the adventure in Vietnam and Cambodia.

But I refuse to go down without a fight. I set out to raise $10,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia and that is exactly what I intend to do … with a little help from my dear friend Candice Butler, who has offered to cycle in my place. My quest to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia continues. With your support, we can continue to ensure Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care.

Savoyards - How to succeed in business without really trying

The witty and irreverent musical with the long name, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING opens at the Iona Performing Arts Centre (IPAC) 26 September, 2015 for 8 performances only.

HOW TO SUCCEED is sure to delight and entertain audiences. As one of the few musicals to win a Pulitzer Prize, 9 Tony Awards (nominated for 11 more) and several revivals, the show’s producers, Savoyards Musical Theatre Company, said they were thrilled to be bringing this community based production to Brisbane this September.

“HOW TO SUCCEED is comically brilliant, classic musical comedy telling the story of how one young man, Pierrepont Finch, uses a little book titled HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING to work his way up from window washer in a giant company to CEO – all in the space of two weeks. Along the way he meets and falls in love with Rosemary, sidesteps the boss’ nephew Bud Frump and avoids a dangerous entanglement with the boss’ girlfriend, Hedy LaRue. All seems to go well until his one ‘big idea’ goes terribly wrong and he faces disaster.

Tickets on sale from Wednesday, 19 August at or by phoning 3893 4321.

Pirate ship Notorious is heading for Manly

Attracting attention wherever she goes, the “Pirate” ship Notorious is heading for the William Gunn Jetty in Manly Harbour. Notorious is the only re-creation of a 1480s Portuguese Caraval in the Southern Hemisphere. Built out of 300 tonnes of recycled timber, these ships were popular with pirates due to their speed and agility.

Home to Graeme and Felicity Wylie of Victoria, the pair are making their way to Brisbane as we speak. Earlier this year they completed a 10,000 mile journey from Warrnambool on Victoria’s south-western coasts to Port Douglas, stopping over in Sydney and now have Brisbane in their sights.

Notorious is expected to be moored alongside the William Gunn Jetty in Manly for one week, arriving Tuesday 7th July until Sunday 12th July. Visitors will be able to tour the “Pirate Ship” for the duration of their visit.

For detailed information regarding tours aboard Notorious while she is in port, contact the Wynnum Manly Tourism and Visitor Information Centre.
