The Floods

My heart goes out to all those affected by the recent floods, in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, and those who are cleaning up for the first, second or even third times.
Just after Christmas, we drove through Warren NSW which is bordered by both the Macquarie River and Marra creek, and had recently been flooded. there was a photo in the main street of the “welcome to Warren” sign and a motorboat on the main highway.
For those of us who want to help, Please make sure you donate to a registered charity like the Premier’s Flood Relief Fund or the Salvation army. If you want to donate goods, may I suggest: oxfam fitzroy in which your goods are matched up with a recipient, leaving the charity services free to look after the people.
