We have had a very generous response from the Parish community to help flood affected communities in northern NSW. Donations of cleaning equipment, portable butane stoves for cooking, tool kits, electrical accessories, water bottles, mops and buckets etc. Father Phillip is delivering all the goods to the ‘Volly Hub’ in Murwillumbah this week so that they can be distributed to those in need as soon as possible. We will ask them for an update of current needs. Many thanks to all.
