BUNDABERG, YOU’VE GOT FRIENDS

There’s a line from an old James Taylor song that says “Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend”. The level of support flowing into and across the Bundaberg Region shows we have a lot of friends.

In an extraordinarily generous display of support, the Directors and Management of Isis Central Sugar Mill threw mill manpower and resources into the flood relief effort.

More than 50 Mill employees, four trucks and two loaders as well as nine smaller vehicles were committed to the flood relief cause by the Mill.

Mill employee Paul Nicol said the scale of the disaster prompted the response.

“Our men and equipment were ready to go on Tuesday, January 29 and have been working in the area ever since.”

Mr. Nicol said the Mill had quite a number of employees and suppliers who came from Bundaberg and this was a tangible manner in which the Mill could support its own “family” as well as assisting the wider community.

“We are scaling down our work at the moment as there are now pressing issues associated with Mill responsibilities. I know our workers have wholeheartedly engaged with the community here to do whatever they could. I think they did a bit of everything,” he said.

Childers Rotarians have also spread their number among flood affected communities with groups assisting with the Mud Army duties last weekend in Bundaberg and travelling to Mundubbera to assist with the flood cleanup in that community.

Childers Rotary president Don Grant said the Club had done what it could and was proud it could pitch in with so many other community and volunteer organizations to make things just a bit easier for flood affected people.
