Thanks for ev­ery­thing

Isis Town and Country - - OPINION - By MELINDA BRAD­FORD

THEY are our un­sung he­roes, pro­vid­ing hu­man­i­tar­ian vol­un­tary work wher­ever the need arises.

Whether it’s their im­me­di­ate re­sponse to nat­u­ral dis­as­ters, their blood ser­vice, or their ev­ery­day work to as­sist vul­ner­a­ble people, they are there for the com­mu­nity.

One hun­dred years on, the Aus­tralian Red Cross is still there for us in our time of need. And what’s more, our Childers Branch has been op­er­at­ing con­tin­u­ously over that time.

To­day, these self­less people con­tinue to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence to the lives of oth­ers.

They visit the hospi­tal and For­est View, con­duct emer­gency train­ing, make trauma ted­dies, fundraise through­out the year and so much more.

Thank you to all lo­cal mem­bers, past and present, who have worked self­lessly for the good of the com­mu­nity.
