As mentioned in our last report I have been away from Rainbow, but carrying on raising funds for those in need of support.
After the recent floods around Tansey, Goomeri, Maryborough areas we offered support to many organisations but due to application processing for grants we only heard back from anyone in mid-February.
Our offer will be taken up by Blaze-Aid – an organisation of volunteers mainly helping with fencing. We have previously helped them after the fires two years ago in northeast Victoria.
This month we have also helped Fencing For Fires in Victoria ($1500) and the Gympie Homeless ($600). Many thanks to all who have donated to our fundraising this month with special mentions to Tin Can Bay Bakery, Jim Snee, and Wayne Kerle.
Bay Auto continues to help Wayne with his bottle collections and a big thanks to Breeze Holiday Park, Tin Can Bay Holiday Park, Tin Can Bay Yacht Club, Kingfisher, and all that have left bottles and cans at 10 Tingira Close, Rainbow Beach.
Now that we are donating to Blaze-Aid ($5000) to help our neighborly flood victims, anyone can help by donating to: Bank of QLD – RB DroughtRunners BSB 124047 A/C NO 22599186.
Hopefully we can then donate the same amount next month. Thank you all.
