FOURTEEN community groups from across the Whitsundays were the welcome recipients of funds donated by businesses who advertised in the Rotary Club of Airlie Beach's phone guide.

At a presentation at the Reef Gateway Hotel on Monday night, a total of $19,525 was handed out to a wide variety of local organisations from advertisers who are able to choose which group will benefit from their advertising dollars.

Airlie Beach branch president John Ryan was on hand to distribute the cheques and was supported by politicians Jason Costigan and George Christensen.

Recipients were the Men's Shed Airlie Beach, PCYC Whitsunday, Airlie Beach Reef Festival, St Vincent de Paul, the Proserpine Hospital, Eco Barge Clean Seas, Whitsunday Raceway and Driver Training, Volunteer Marine Rescue, the Proserpine Nursing Home, St Catherine's Catholic College, Dingo Beach Progress Association, Cannon Valley Pony Club, Scallywags and the Cannon Valley Rural Fire Brigade.
