“Some of the $51 million that was raised through the actions of Celeste Barber and the generosity of the donors, should be directed to the Volunteers and Brigades who many people believed they were donating to” said Mr. Mick Holton VFFA President.
Kellie is a young female koala who was rescued by Grose Wold 1 during the Gospers Mountain Fire and hundreds of departing crews made her acquaintance at the Kurrajong Heights Bowling Club.
She was entrusted to Wires and Martin Philpott has looked after her for the last six months. She has now been returned to the bush. SBS take up the story.
We wait until next week for the outcome of the Celeste Barber case in the NSW Supreme Court to determine what will happen with the $51 million raised for the RFS.
We also sadly report on the death from Covid19 of the french Mayor of Villiers-Bretonneaux who raised so much money for our bushfire victims.
Plus all the other news from around the state and more.
Roger Underwood opined in Quadrant Online that the outcomes from the NSW Bushfire Enquiry could be expected to be delivered on true “Yes Minister” lines.
We shouldn’t expect the NSW Enquiry to seriously criticise the performance of its own government. The Royal Commission may produice a better result.
