Flood Disaster Relief for CWA Kempsey

The recent floods have affected much of the eastern coastline, with many of the towns surrounding the Macleay River becoming inundated with flood waters, as it burst its banks earlier this month – with Kempsey being the hardest hit.

With this being the fourth natural disaster at Kempsey in a little over 12 months, state emergency, rescue services, local government, and community support services went into overdrive as did the wonderful ladies at Kempsey CWA providing produce, shelter and mental health support to many families and community members.

The amount raised to date is  $18,556 …with donations still open we are aiming  to get to $20k with thanks to Briars Sports for their generous donation of $1,000.
