IT’S been nearly four months since the devastating Sir Ivan bushfire and the town of Dunedoo is still struggling under the weight of the horrific blaze.
But the residents of the Myall can show their support by joining a special fundraising day at the Tea Gardens Bowling Club.
The Bowls Day is open to all, mufti is the only dress requirement and if you don’t have the bowls, they’ll be provided.
Former Dunedoo resident Pip Sullivan and his wife Maureen are the driving force behind the CWA appeal.
The couple has been doing their bit, constantly visiting the Dunedoo region and getting down and getting dirty with the Blazeaid organisation which is helping with the massive clean up and rebuild of the area.
Over 52 thousand hectares were destroyed along with 52 homes, 60 thousand head of livestock, 130 buildings and six thousand kilometres of fencing in the February firestorm.
Blazeaid was started in 2009 after the devastating Black Saturday fires in Victoria.
Since then, the not for profit organisation has helped over three thousand property owners affected by fire.
So if you want to add your support and have a great fun day at the same time, head to the Tea Gardens Bowling Club on Friday 2 June at midday.
The cost per person is $10 and that includes a sausage sizzle.
For more details you can contact Pip Sullivan on: 0418 479 761.
All proceeds to the Dunedoo Branch of the CWA Bushfire Appeal Fund.
