Dig deep for bush fire vic­tims

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

IM­AGES of the hor­ren­dous bush­fires dev­as­tat­ing prop­er­ties and peo­ple’s lives in New South Wales have prompted two Dou­glas busi­nesses to launch an ap­peal.

Michael Kerr, Coles man­ager Ja­son Smith, to­gether with Mel Mot­ley have joined forces to help those who have lost ev­ery­thing.

A bin has been placed at the front of the Coles Su­per­mar­ket to col­lect non­per­ish­able items, while Tar­get will also re­ceive cash do­na­tions for the Fire Ap­peal.

‘‘Peo­ple can do­nate items, but we’re ap­peal­ing for donors to only leave clean items in good con­di­tion,’’ Ms Mot­ley said.

‘‘Ja­son has ar­ranged for do­nated goods to be trucked to the ar­eas in need in New South Wales.’’

Mr Kerr said he had put the ap­peal on Face­book and was heart­ened by the in­tial re­sponse.
