Last day to access BlazeAid help
AFTER a tiring but effective month helping storm-affected farmers, BlazeAid says time is running out for residents to register for assistance.
BlazeAid camp coordinator John Lillico confirmed today would be the last opportunity for farmers who required assistance to make themselves known to the volunteer group.
The BlazeAid group has helped with clean-up and repairs at more than 35 properties since setting up in Kingaroy’s Vintage Machinery Club after last month’s severe storms.
“There was a lot of tree damage and sadly, lots of dead birds,” Mr Lillico said.
The volunteer group has received lots of support from the community, but the majority of volunteers came from outside the region to lend a hand.
“Seventy per cent of our volunteers have come from out of town,” Mr Lillico said.
“One couple has come all the way from Adelaide to help.”
The BlazeAid coordinator thanked everyone who had been involved in the efford and said he was planning a thank you event to acknowledge everyone who had been so generous with their time.
“Everyone has helped out so much, we especially love getting all the cakes people have made,” Mr Lillico said.
“I’ll be going home a little heavier than when I first came,” he joked.
If you require assistance from BlazeAid, call Mr Lillico on 0484 145 732.
