The Dunedoo Branch of the Country Women’s Association said, “Your generosity and support has been greatly appreciated and will always be remembered.”

“$5,100 has been raised in this area so far and there is still one more raffle to be finalised,” Fundraising organiser, Pip Sullivan told News Of The Area.

“This is an outstanding amount and will go to provide fencing materials to Blazeaid to help with rebuilding.”

Pip said, “This would not have been possible without the assistance of The Tea Gardens Country Club, Bowling Club, Golf Club and their members in their willingness to help raise the funds.”

The Dunedoo CWA would also like thank the businesses for their donations for prizes for the raffles.

The Tea Gardens Country Club, The Tea Gardens Hotel Motel, Mantra Aqua, Nelson Bay, Lazy Paddles Guided Tours and Kayak Hire, Hawks Nest Golf Club, the Hawks Nest Veterans Golfers, Cole Bros Oysters Karuah, Queens Kitchen, Tea Gardens Bowling Club, Tillermans Cafe and Restaurant, The BoatShed Restaurant, Mumm’s On the Myall, The Tea Gardens Fish Co-Op and Hawks Nest Newsagency.

Six thousand kilometres of fencing was lost in the Sir Ivan bushfires in February along with 35 homes and an estimated 5,000 head of livestock.

Volunteers with Blazeaid, who are helping with the massive job of re-fencing the region, are expected to remain in the region until Christmas.
