Communities pull together to help flood victims
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.
