Couple helps cyclone victims

By JOLEE WAKEFIELD

CARMEN and Ken Williams don't call themselves heroes, just human beings.

"That's why we're collecting items to send to the cyclone victims in Innisfail,'' Mrs Williams said yes- terday.

"These people need our help. "I would hope someone would help my family if they were in a similar situation,'' she said.

Millions of dollars have been do- nated to help alleviate the pain from Cyclone Larry but other types of do- nations are still desperately needed, they said.

The couple are appealing to the Rockhampton community to help collect clothes, linen, toys and other household items by tomorrow.

"That's when we will send all of the boxes up to the Salvation Army in Innisfail,'' Mrs Williams said. The couple have already collected 10 boxes worth of items to help. "We're hoping for at least 30 box- es,'' Mrs Williams said.

Mr Williams said they did not know anyone in Innisfail, but had stopped there for lunch on their honeymoon two years ago.

Gorman's Removals has donated boxes to pack the items in and Queensland Rail has agreed to send the items to North Queensland for free.

If you can help, leave items on the veranda at 90 Sharples Street or phone 4926?8081 after 4pm.
