Rainbow Beach DroughtRunners Report June 2022

Blaze-Aid volunteers working near Goomeri.

Blaze-Aid volunteers working near Goomeri.

Well as I said last month we could be called the floodrunners as we have again put funds into those communities suffering from too much rain.

Firstly we finally got the big pallet of new clothes and toys away to Mullumbimby Relief Centre to distribute to those that lost everything last month. I must thank Followmont Transport for doing this delivery free of charge. It was a very generous gesture.

We have topped up Fencing for Fires in northeast Victoria with materials to $1500, and put another $1000 into Blaze-Aid for fuel at Murgon-Goomeri who continue to put up fencing with volunteers who will be there until at least October.

We have also given another $600 to help feed the homeless in Gympie and will do more before June.

Many thanks to all that have donated this month and these include Bronwyn McFarlane in Tin Can Bay, Bill Bailey from Victoria (1G), Tin Can Bay Bakery for collections, Jim and Marg Snee, Wayne Kerle for his tireless bottle sorting and to all that have donated to our can & bottle bins.

Thank you to Big 4 Caravan Park at Carlo &and Tin Can Bay Holiday Park and all other collection points in Tin Can Bay.

Hopefully next month we can earn a bit more and maybe try a few different fundraisers. If anyone can help financially or you have unwanted NEW clothes we would love to hear from you as there is a lot of help needed out there right now.
