Gympie Regional Council says “Thankyou Rurals”
After the recent flooding and then cleanup, a meeting of business owners and the Gympie Regional Council has decided to hold a charity concert and flood relief appeal with the proceeds being donated to local Rural Fire Brigades via the RFBAQ.
Saturday 19th February will see Jamie Dunn and Agro, Jess Fox, the Duke Wilde Band and many more at Nelson Reserve starting at 6.30pm.
The Association and a number of Rural Fire appliances and Volunteers will also be present looking for new recruits for brigades.
The recent events that have severely impacted Queensland have bought out thousands of people who have never Volunteered before, and a percentage of these people will be interested in continuing to support their communities through some sort of Volunteer organisation.
If your brigade or group would like Association support for a recruit or awareness raising activity, then please do not hesitate to contact us at the RFBAQ and we will endeavour to support your activity.
Once again, a big thankyou to the Gympie business community and the Gympie Regional Council and we look forward to seeing as many Volunteers in PPE or Uniform as can make it on Saturday February 19th.
