Carolyn and Barry Heimbecker have been volunteering with
The Lung Association for the past three years. On March 1 of each year
they have been front and centre in the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre
selling bunches of tulips to raise funds for the Association.
The Lung Association is a registered charity that
funds respiratory research, promotes better management of asthma, helps
those with chronic lung disease, promotes a tobacco-free society and
addresses the effects of air quality on lung health.
This year, the goal was to sell over 100,000 bunches of tulips and
raise over $600,000 to support Lung Association programs.
