Buchan and Gelantipy Bush Fire Appeal

This go fund me has been started by the team behind Boisdale Drought Breakers onbehald of the communities of Buchan and Gelantipy.

On the back of three plus years of drought these communities have lost homes and nearly all their pasture, hay/silage, fences, troughs, water systems to troughs. And are in desperate need for items along the feed. They are still under direct bush fire threat.

100% of all funds raised will go to purchase essential items requested by the people in Buchan and Gelantipy. They will then been dropped to Buchan by our volunteers, where the community will distribute. 

Why Buchan - why not??? there isn’t many people that have enjoyed a visit to the caves, been to the rodeo or picinic races, participated in a school camp at Gelantipy or along the Snowy with the team at Karoonda Park. These people are resilient and would give you the shirt of their own back!

Us ourselves are each connected to the area. I have taken many groups of school kids rafting down the Snowy and through the caves in the area. We have no direct relations in the area but plenty of friends that we have been connected with through our jobs etc. We love the town and are trying to do what we can to help.

If you are donating please be reassured that even though money will be drawn into a personal bank account that this will be transferred to the Buchan Pubs Trust bank account  and used by their committee to assist people to get back on their feet.
