Men’s Shed to support flood victims

After the support Gilgandra received during the drought, it’s time to give back.

Roy Duncan, member of the Gilgandra Men’s Shed, wants to support our northern neighbours who have been severely affected by floods in recent weeks.

“Gilgandra received thousands of dollars during the two or three years of bad drought from these places that are now suffering, and I thought it was an opportune time to make some contribution.”

The Men’s Shed will be at A Night Under the Gums event this weekend to collect donations for flood affected victims.

“I appreciate that by now some people have already made some donation towards other organisations, but I wanted to try and see that something actually came from Gilgandra.”

All money donated will be going through the Bendigo Bank flood disaster appeal which is focusing on individuals and communities affected by the floods in South East QLD and Northern NSW.

Mr Duncan’s generous idea was inspired by the generosity Gilgandra received from these areas during the drought. Volunteers from the shed will be walking around the event with advertising placards and buckets so that those attending can make a contribution.

“I hope it’s a big one but that’s up to the hearts of the people at the time.”
