Disaster Relief Australia wanted to assist in the Northern Rivers region, being one of the hardest hit areas during the recent flood emergency. Proudly supported by the New South Wales club industry, DRA were able to base relief operations out of the Coraki Golf Club.
DRA couldn’t have done it without the support and donations from the team at Clubs NSW (@yourlocalclub). Their services and generosity throughout Operation Kelliher have ensured that the DRA team has the equipment and resources to help communities that have been impacted by the floods.
Greg Scurr, Coraki Golf Club President said “people are only too appreciative of what DRA has done. It’s given people a little light at the end of the tunnel and brought things forward for them in regards to be able to get back into their properties and live a normal life again”.
DRA volunteer and mission commander Amy Brierley, was motivated by a Coraki resident’s simple message. She said “The thing that kept me and my team going through this has been the fact that we saw a large white sheet with ‘thank you volunteers’ written on it hanging from somebody’s balcony. I thought “this is good work that we are doing, we are able to contribute”.
Clubs NSW CEO Josh Landis says DRA is a great partner. He asserted that while the money raised for DRA “doesn’t touch the sides on the impact of what’s happening”, it’s a contribution from the clubs they should be proud of.
Thank you! ClubsNSW. Your team is definitely Built To Serve!
