Letter to the editor: Wonderful support

By Cobram Courier

Wonderful support

Thank you to the heartfelt crew that helped in any way to get things organised for the bushfire victims appeal at my home.

Sandwich makers Liz and Roma - all donated with love and compassion.

Geoff for giving us reports on some of the fires and donating his time and effort.

Wonderful Karen who counselled us all on fires and how they affected us all. Man, women and child. I only asked her about 10.30 am and, on her holidays, she prepared and beautifully presented information. So thanks to Karen once again.

It shows the empathy and compassion of some of us human beings.

I was amazed how giving people were. I can only imagine the heartfelt sense of giving within this community and what a wonderful team we live within our towns.

Be it Barooga and Cobram - Artavillas, Cobram Hot Bake, Ambience, Bakers Delight, Woolworths, Cobram-Barooga Golf Club Sports Club, Barooga IGA, Cobram IGA delivering water to victims, Cobram Fine Foods and Woolworths’ ice supplier.

I do apologise to anyone I have overlooked. I know there will be disappointed people wanting to donate. Donation boxes scattered through the towns. To Barooga clubs, pubs and businesses, if I don't supply you with a donation box, we would be only to happy for your to make your own.
