Flood victims still in our hearts

QUEENSLAND flood aid is continuing across the Tweed.

Despite other natural disasters in the form of cyclones and earthquakes there is still enough empathy left on the Tweed for the flood victims.

Murwillumbah resident Tara Clifford is the head of a committee to co-ordinate and focus the flood relief efforts stemming from the Tweed community.

Ms Clifford said although the initial burst of fundraising had died down there was still a swell of support for the victims who lost their businesses, homes and families.

“There are still lots of smaller fundraising events happening here and there,” Ms Clifford said.

“The next big event will be an Irish music concert.

Ms Clifford said the committee was still available to help residents with fundraising ideas or events.

“People are more than welcome to contact us for any fundraising ideas. We can offer to help with publicity,” Ms Clifford said.

“There has been a lot of support from the Tweed region and we are still committed to helping the flood victims.

“We are here to link volunteers to activities, to co-ordinate fundraising events so they are not scheduled on the same date, and to maximise our volunteer efforts.”

Ms Clifford said Tweed residents were welcome to email her at tarabilbyclifford@gmail.com.
