Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fundraising

To support our fellow Victorians impacted by the recent bushfires, staff have volunteered to fundraise on the day to support the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. 

The appeal is dedicated to providing practical support for impacted Victorians to begin to rebuild their lives. It will also provide financial assistance for the rescue and rehabilitation of local wildlife. 

If you'd like to make a donation on the day please bring coins or notes.
