The chairman of the Community Foundation Louise Halsey said “the board has been very pleased to be able to activate our Disaster Appeal which was last used in the floods of 2010 /12 and to assist in the fundraising for the SES sandbagging machine.

To date the Appeal is over $30,000. Once things settle we shall meet to determine the best way to distribute to the victims which will be in the form of vouchers for goods from local businesses.

We shall try and accommodate the desire of donors for their donation to be used specifically as best we can, but every dollar will be of great value.

For all those who have been impacted by the fire or know of folk who have, we ask that you register names and addresses with the coordinating partners or by contacting:
