South Gippsland bush fire relief appeal.

Here is a good opportunity for the HRA community to assist some folks who in recent days have had their homes destroyed by Bush Fires. Some residents in the South Gippsland area in towns such as Yinnar and Boolarra, have lost everything except the clothes on their backs! Everyday items such as household appliances and whitegoods, childrens toys, clothing and even food items and in need by these families. As we use their back yards to conduct rallies in, the committee would like all members to consider donating something to make the lives of these families a little better.

If members could consider bringing items to the Annual General meeting at the East Malvern RSL, we will organise for those items, whatever they might be, to be delivered to the Salvation Army who are co-ordinating the Appeal for those folks in need. Should you wish to make a financial donation this can also be done at any NAB branch and made to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund.

Glad Fish will accept donations at The Grayn Restaurant 51-53 Princes Hwy Pakenham between 11am and 11pm Tues to Fri or Sat 4pm to 11pm. This is an extremely worthwhile cause and as we enjoy their backyard the club should group together and help the residents of South Gippsland in their time of need. Should members have any questions call or email our President Kate Officer or Secretary Liz Partington.
