North Queensland Flood Collection

Hi Everyone,

As you know there have been devastating floods in North Queensland especially around the Townsville area. Many of you will remember the amazing community spirit that we experienced in the local area when we were faced with the same in 2011.

Wendy from Graceville Fine Goods and Deli is organising a collection for the residents of Townsville and has put a shout out to our local community. For those of you that don’t know Wendy, she has a huge heart and is always the first person to jump to action when others are in need. I thought it would be worth sharing her message to see if anyone would be able to contribute over the next couple of days. She has a specific list of items and the drop off point is Graceville Fine Foods and Deli on Bank Road. Please see Wendy’s request:

Ok, so I'm still trying to lock in transport to Townsville but it's looking extremely positive so I'm just going to get this ball rolling and start our........


"Help support Townsville" appeal.

Graceville Fine Foods will be the drop off point as of tomorrow, Tuesday 5/2/19.

We are helping "Food Relief NQ" and all our donations will go directly to them as they are the people on the ground and will distribute to the people that need them the most.

My gorgeous friends Mick & Meggsy in Townsville are my contacts and I will work with them to make this all happen.

We are collecting the following items.

•Children's toys
•Nappies
•Formula
•Cleaning products
•Pet food
•Non-perishable food
•Toiletries
•Non-perishable snacks
•Bottled water

Seeing people in need breaks my heart so I'm going hard to collect as much as we possibly can.

As soon as it's safe to start travelling to Townsville we will load up and move out.

I know I ask a lot of you and you know I truly appreciate everything you've always done but I just can't stand by so please please please give as much as you can.

Could you also "share" this post as well so everybody knows where to donate.

From the bottom of my heart I thank you xxx

I hope we can help
Regards
Heidi
