Dear Editor,

Blaze Aid is setting up camp in Kingston SE this weekend ready to start work at the Keilira fire ground on Tuesday 28 January.

Blaze Aid is a volunteer-based organisation that works across rural and regional Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside property owners, Blaze Aid volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.

I recently volunteered with Blaze Aid in the Adelaide Hills. I meet some wonderful people and I was really impressed with the organisations professionalism and what was being achieved.

I will be volunteering again with Blaze Aid next week, this time at Keilira. I encourage you to join me and lend a hand. You don’t need any fencing experience, just a willingness to give it a go and learn on the job.

If you can spare a day or two or perhaps even more, you can register as a volunteer by contacting the Blaze Aid Kingston SE coordinator, Mary Howarth, on 0429 367 538.
