Com­mu­ni­ties pull to­gether to help flood vic­tims

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS - Bron­wyn Wheatcroft

DIS­AS­TER has brought the Table­lands to­gether to lend a help­ing hand to those in need.

Dream State En­ter­tain­ment So­phie and Ja­cob McGrath per­formed one of their cir­cus busk­ing shows on Satur­day at the Ku­randa Easter Fes­ti­val and asked for do­na­tions to help flood vic­tims in the re­gion.

The Koah Sports and So­cial Club (Koah Hall) care­tak­ers said this year they wanted to do­nate their “hat”.

“This year we de­cided to do­nate the hat to the peo­ple that have been af­fected by the floods,” So­phie said.

“I think we raised just over $300 our­selves. There were also raf­fles in town where over $200 was raised.”

She said that when the floods hit they were re­turn­ing from the Ade­laide Fringe Fes­ti­val and ar­rived back in Koah to find the com­mu­nity help­ing each other.

“We got back and peo­ple were do­nat­ing blanks, tow­els and food,” she said.

“Some fam­i­lies are back on their feet al­ready but there are still plenty more that need help.

“If you need any­thing come and have a look at what is at the hall at Musumeci Park, 322 Koah Road, Koah.

“If there is any­thing not there at the hall that you need we will try and help get it. If peo­ple need phys­i­cal help come and see us.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help. The com­mu­nity is amaz­ing and peo­ple will help you out.” Con­tact the Koah Hall Face­book page for more in­for­ma­tion.
