TERRY Hall was on a mission last week.
Armed with paint brushes, gardening shears and man power, Terry's team of 36 city students was ready to give a big lift to some small towns.
Terry was the co-ordinator of the recent QUT Big Lift trip which saw students from Queensland University of Technology travel to Moura to help out with some projects around the town.
"We went to Theodore last year and we were looking for somewhere else in the Banana Shire to go," Terry said.
The idea of the QUT program is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to develop meaningful relationships with indigenous communities through community service.
In doing this the team travels to a series of regional towns once a year.
This year the team travelled to Cherbourg, Eidsvold and Moura.
"We were looking at Biloela initially but it just didn't quite work."
Some of the projects included a mural at Moura Aquatic Centre, maintenance to the bowls club and tennis club and gardening at the retirement village.
Moura community member Debbie Palmes said the clubs were happy with the help and feedback had been good.
Some of the community groups that received a "big lift" were Moura Child Care Centre, Kianga Hall, Moura Lions Den, Moura Hack and Pony Club and Moura Rotary Park.
