For the seventh time, Kiama Red Cross has won the prestigious Chairman’s Shield in recognition of it being the country branch to raise the most money for Red Cross Calling.
“This could not have been achieved without the marvellous help of Minnamurra Lions, Kiama Lions, Kiama Girl Guides and Kiama High School,” says the President of Red Cross Kiama, Judi O’Brien.
“These groups need to be congratulated for assisting us in our fund raising achievements.
“Of course, we would also like to acknowledge the generosity of our Kiama community. Thank you one and all.”
Red Cross teams are currently supporting communities affected by multiple bushfires in New South Wales and Queensland.
Specialist emergency volunteers are providing psychological first aid, working at evacuation centres and helping people to get in touch with their loved ones through a register system.
Support for this and other emergency work across Australia and the Asia-
Pacific region can be shown with a donation to Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery.
