Volunteers from Blazeaid have set up camp at the Glenreagh Recreation Reserve to help Orara Valley locals recover from the recent bushfires by providing practical, on-the-ground assistance.
Orara Valley residents from both the Coffs Harbour City Council and Clarence Valley Council local government areas are being encouraged to register with Blazeaid for assistance with the rebuilding of fences which have been impacted by the 2019 bushfires.
To be eligible for assistance you will need to register by calling the Glenreagh Camp Coordinator John Lillico on 0484 145 732.
Blazeaid volunteers offer practical labour and work with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Equally importantly, the volunteers also aim to help lift the spirits of those who have been impacted. BlazeAid volunteers often work in a disaster-affected area for many months helping rebuild the local communities.
Blazeaid is a volunteer organisation which relies on the support of local communities to provide volunteers who have the capacity to offer their time to work with their regular teams. If you or your organisation can help, please contact the camp coordinator, John Lillico.
