How to donate to the fire recovery effort


BlazeAid is a volunteer run organisation which specialises in helping farms rebuild their infrastructure after devastating bushfires.
This includes repairing and replacing fencing, cattle yards, troughs, pipes, water tanks, and more.
BlazeAid has a base camp at the Casino Showgrounds where 30-40 volunteers from across NSW and interstate will camp for 9-12 weeks.
With the community’s help these volunteers will identify the farms which have been most badly affected by the recent fires and work to rebuild their infrastructure.
To donate to BlazeAid, go to the BlazeAid website at www.BlazeAid.com.au or contact Debbie on 0418 990 267.
Donations can be targeted to a specific recovery effort, so 100% of local donations will go towards supporting recovery from the Busbys Flat Rd – Rappville fire.
