Clive Berghofer has been named as a Queensland Great by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.

The 82-year-old was one of five people across the state to be awarded the accolade at a Queensland Day Awards ceremony.

Mr Berghofer came from humble beginnings with no education but with hard work and determination he rose above and continues to work at age 82.

He has given to various charities, emergency services and causes, with his weekly giveaway valued at $90,000.

Some reports indicate the Toowoomba philanthropist’s contributions sit at around $80 million.

Indeed, a Queensland Great.
