“Following a plea for help from Judy Jackson, Team Leader of the Red Cross Emergency Services, funding was sought from the always generous Lions Club of Woolgoolga.

“The aim was to pack toiletry kits to give to people leaving evacuation centers but unable to return home permanently.

“The response from the Lions was an incredible $2,000 and a small team of members of the Woolgoolga Red Cross branch spent many hours shopping at the local Woolworths store who were incredibly helpful.

“The store added a $100 voucher and a generous shopper who saw the Red Cross members also donated $100.
“Members Jenny Wilks and Kerry Chaffey have selected a range of appropriate toiletries including shampoo, shaving supplies, insect repellent and other important and necessary items.

“Jenny and Kerry then led a small group of Woolgoolga Red Cross, Lions Club and Rotary volunteers in a work bee to sort and prepare packages to be transported to displaced flood victims in Grafton, Woodburn and Maclean said Robyn.

The Australian Red Cross is leading a major flood appeal to raise funds to help flood victims get back on their feet.

If anyone would like to help, donations can be made either to the local Woolgoolga branch (0418646801) or direct to the Red Cross at redcross.org, au/floodsappeal or 1800733276.
