When a disaster such as the bushfires at Dunedoo & Queanbeyan occurs, a Disaster Recovery Centre is established to provide food, clothing, personal requirements, accommodation, counselling etc for those who have suffered loss or are in need. Volunteers from various community organisations work with the Police & Family and Community Services in these centres to assist with the provisions of these requirements.
If you would like to learn more about this community service or would like to be involved in this volunteer work, an Information & Training Day will be held on Saturday 11th March 2017 at St James, Wyong Anglican Church, 27 Byron St Wyong, from 10am- 12 noon, And a “Refresher Course” for existing volunteers from 12.30 – 2pm.
There is no charge but (for catering purposes) please register your attendance by 9th March.
RSVP with John Elder on 3452 1226 or with The Parish Office on 4353 3699.
NB – While this training day is at the Anglican Church, volunteers are non-denominational.
