There have been some wonderful rains over most of Western Queensland, with only a few areas missing a good soaking. Hopefully, follow up rains have come.
But it doesn’t rain dollars and unfortunately the Banks have called in loans on some properties. It is sad when you get sold up all due to years of drought..
Due to Covid we were a lot quieter helping families in crisis because of drought and bush fires. In 2020 we saw six loads of food hampers to Longreach ,Warwick and Gin Gin, plus $35,000 in vouchers and donations to those suffering mental health issues in the Longreach area and fire victims in North East Victoria, for a total close to $100,000.
This month we thank: Rotary Bendigo, Judy Dakin, Bernards and Tin Can Bay Bakery, Snak Shak and Lees, Bay Auto, David and Valerie Wright, IGAs and Drakes.
Wayne Kerle helped generate $2000 through bottle and can collection at Rainbow Waters and the Surf Club (unfortunately ceased due to persons robbing our bins).
$2000 has been sent to Fencing For Fires in Victoria, $500 for school children from Rolleston towards their holiday in Rainbow Beach, and $2000 to Longreach.
