This project ran throughout 2017 to assist those affected by the Sir Ivan and Kains Flat fires North of Mudgee.
Following the extensive bushfires which occurred in central western NSW in 2017, the Rotary Club of Mudgee and Mudgee Sunrise jointly sponsored and established a fund to assist individuals and families suffering significant loss and distress caused by the fires.
The fund has been established through the Rotary Australia Benevolent Society – an arm of Rotary Australia World Community Service – and has been listed as a charitable fund. This means it has Deductible Gift Recipient status so that donations made to it are tax deductible.
The funds were disbursed with assistance of Blaze Aid to ensure a focussed use of donations.
