NQX Freight Systems staff play Santa's role ahead of toy run
STAFF at NQX Freight Systems have been dealing with freight of a different kind lately.
Company driver Michael Goodson has been using the office as a base for playing Santa.
The motorbike rider is taking part in Saturday's Ulysses Toy Run, and the past few weeks have seen toys piling up.
"We have had two large boxes overflowing with toys, which is an enormous contribution," staff member Nicole Walker said.
"And also kids giving up there toys to give to the boys and girls who won't receive gifts this year."
The annual ride will start at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens on Saturday, before heading through the city centre and looping back to finish at the gardens.
A Gladstone police spokesman said local officers would lead the ride and provide traffic control for the event, as they had every year for the Ulysses club.
Riders will meet at 9.30am for a 10am start.
Following the ride, proceeds from a multi-draw raffle and a sausage sizzle at the gardens will all go to the Salvation Army.
