Parramatta Leagues Club has made a donation of $20,000 to support the locals of Moruya affected by the bush fires.
When the bush fires hit the evacuation centre in Moruya overflowed from the amount of people and Moruya Golf Club open their doors.
Read what General Manager of Moruya Golf Club, Josh Prowse has said of the current events and how our support will provide assistance.
“Things have been very tough throughout December and January as the road from Canberra to Batemans Bay was closed for many weeks. This is one thing that is not seen by people who do not live in our area.
When the bush fires hit last Tuesday I don’t think anyone was prepared for what would happen. I personally live at Surf Beach and have now been as of 9.1.2020 I am 10 days at home without power, phones, internet and telephones. I would still consider myself one of the lucky ones though.
At my club we had people camping along fairways throughout last week and the weekend. The evacuation centre in Moruya overflowed from the amount of people who choose to use it. We had staff sleeping at the club from Friday to Sunday and we opened it up for anyone else who wanted a place to sleep. This offer was taken up by a few families. We found communication very difficult and it was hard to get the message out to the public that we were offering a place to sleep, shower etc.
We will continue to work through these tough times and get through this together.
In my area there were many clubs who did great things for the community which was fantastic.
Thank you for your support! “
