With the recent bushfires, we have had some interest from Club Members about how they can help. There are a number of volunteering opportunities around the country, and in particular, BlazeAid have set up a camps to help those areas particularly affected by the recent fires. To find out about specific camps and opportunities to help out, you can go to their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Blazeaid) or their website (www.blazeaid.com.au).
