Just 60 days until the EKKA!


There is less than two months to go until the annual Royal Queensland Show, also known as the EKKA! We will be back again this year serving up the iconic Strawberry Sundaes to help raise money for The Common Good.

Last year we sold over 130,000 Strawberry Sundaes, raising money to fund more than 3700 hours of crucial medical research! This worked out to be about 19,000 litres of delicious LICK! Ice cream (or 85 bathtubs!), 140,000 fresh wafer cones, 10 tonnes of home-grown Queensland strawberries and 1900 litres of fresh cream. Wow!

We couldn’t have done it without the dedicated support of nearly 3,000 volunteers, and this year we need YOU to sign up to be a part of this important event. If you have a few hours to scoop ice cream and help battle chronic disease, head to our website and register your interest to become one of our amazing EKKA volunteers!
