HPERM Ref: D18/93402
That Council accept the report for information and support the Residents of Bega Valley Shire Council affected by the weekend bushfires.
Shoalhaven City Council wish to pass on its heartfelt support to the residents of Bega valley Shire Council that have been affected by the weekend’s bushfires. As the weekend events in Tathra unfolded we felt keenly the fear, anxiety and worry of the community.
We acknowledge how quickly the community have come together to support one another, the shared experience is the glue that will unite you all in your journey towards re-establishment.
Communities like the Shoalhaven empathise with you, as we too are a bushfire prone place. We enjoy deeply the wonders of our natural world when times are benign and understand the terror of a bushfire situation. We know that you are a resilient group of people who will work hard to rebuild your lives through your community connections.
As a community, we offer our support, and, rather than dilute any fundraising efforts, we encourage all of our citizens who wish to help financially or to donate goods to the following places:
Bega Valley Mayors Relief Fund:
Donations to the Mayor’s Relief Fund can be made by bank transfer or credit card.
