Help for flood victims at Camira

WITH one-and-a-half basketball courts filled with donations of clothes and household goods, locals affected by the floods are encouraged to visit the Camira Springfield Community Centre.

Based in Old Logan Road at Camira, Springfield Christian Family pastor Phil Cutcliffe said an army of volunteers were ready to help in any way they could, from handing out donations, to counselling, tetanus injections or help with Centrelink forms.

Pastor Cutcliffe said they were also helping provide larger household items, by pairing donors of second-hand items with those in need.

He said more than 350 pieces of furniture had been donated.

“We have lots of clothes and electrical goods,” Pastor Cutcliffe said.

“All the sorts of usual things people would need when they are restoring their homes.”

Pastor Cutcliffe said more than 400 people had donated to help flood relief.

“It has been fantastic the number of people who have given up their time and taken leave to help the community,” he said.
