Interested in bushfire relief?

Interested in bushfire relief? Image

Docklanders with a desire to help Black Saturday bushfire victims have an opportunity to join a Rotary Club of Docklands working bee in Kinglake this month.

A small group of Rotary Club of Docklands members travelled to Kinglake last month to help out and will return on November 8.

Club service director Adrian Stanners said the group of eight was involved in a number of activities including cleaning, office work, firewood deliveries, clearing and trenching.

Mr Stanners said the group was co-ordinated by Global Care, an organisation which has been working on the ground since the fire last February.

“When you give up a day of your weekend to help out, you feel good about it,” he said.

He said in some respects, much had been done to recover from the fires but, in other respects, there remained much to the done.

“It’s very slow progress in some pockets,” he said.  “It’s looks like they haven’t even scratched the surface.  And yet, in other pockets nearby, there’s no evidence of fire at all.”

People wishing to help can call Mr Stanners on 0434 071 990.

The Rotary Club of Docklands meets every Tuesday at James Squires Brewhouse from 6pm.  Call Leisa Wheatland on 0421 096 573 for membership enquiries.
