NET volunteers have been saved from walking to and from work after Central Highlands Mitsubishi donated a car for them to use during their time in Emerald.

The car has taken the group as far as Rockhampton and all about town, along with regular trips to Springsure, Anakie and Clermont.

"It drives very well. It does everything we need it to do," NET member Jessie Smith said. "We work in schools and with the wider community. We couldn't do it without the car."

The team, one New Zealander, a Canadian and three Australians, has been in Emerald since mid-February and will stay until November.

This is the first year Central Highlands Mitsubishi has donated a car to the St Patrick's parish for the work of NET, the National Evangelisation Team.

Central Highlands Mitsubishi general manager Michael Anstee said the St

Patrick's parish approached him and he said he was only too happy to help.

"We try to get involved with as many community programs as possible," he said.
