A hot Sunday afternoon did not deter Biloelan youngsters from giving Little Athletics a go. 

All nine athletes will compete in Brisbane this weekend in the State Championships. 

The names of the athletes are Will, Ruby, Callie, Summah, Chloe, Clae, Kobi, Hayley, and Annabelle. 

The Biloela Little Athletics club also completed its fundraising goals last Sunday.
Centre Manager Joselyn Thornton said they were thankful for all the sponsors who had come from a variety of places in the community.

"All up we organised four Sausage Sizzles between Home Timber & Hardware Biloela and Callide Valley 4x4 & Outdoor, four $2 Money Boards, one $10 Money Board, and a Two Prize Tupperware Raffle donated by Ally," she said. 

"On top of all this we had Anne Marie donate $200 and then Beyer's Smash Repairs Biloela donated an incredible $1500, this is still mind-blowing.

"Plus we had amazing winners donate all or part of their winnings back, Sara Dennis donated $100 and Clayne Tarry $150.

"We can not forget every single person who supported our sausage sizzles and raffles or who just said, ‘keep the change’, ‘I just want to make a donation’ — your support is greatly appreciated and from us all."

The club smashed their initial fundraising goals. 

The final count was $4613.95.
