Blue Mountains donates
THE Blue Mountains tourism community has come together to donate $19,500 to local Rural Fire Service Brigades after holding a fundraising campaign just before Christmas (TD 18 Dec 2019).
The donation, raised by Scenic World, Blue Mountains Explorer Bus and a number of hotels including The Carrington, will be divvied up between the South Katoomba and Katoomba/Leura Rural Fire Service Brigades.
“We all wanted to do something to give back, so this fundraising campaign was one way of saying ‘thank you’ and furthermore, providing support for the ongoing firefighting efforts in our region,” said Scenic World Managing Director Anthea Hammon.
