Westfund donates $10,000 to SES

WESTFUND Health Insurance is pleased to donate $10,000 to the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) - Rockhampton and Livingstone Unit.

SES volunteers have provided endless support to the members of the Rockhampton community adversely affected by Cyclone Debbie and the subsequent flooding, and this is Westfund's way of saying 'thank you'.

"The sheer magnitude of the clean-up efforts in the wake of Cyclone Debbie cannot be understated, and the SES have been hard at work helping every step of the way,' said Westfund Regional Manager Sarah Aldous.

"This donation is our way of thanking the selfless SES volunteers who have worked, and continue to work, towards helping our community recover from this disaster,” she said.

With the huge clean-up effort continuing, there is still much to be done in the disaster affected communities.

"I'm thrilled to be able to pass on this donation today to our hard-working SES volunteers,” she said.

The donations will be used for a variety of purchases, including a new chainsaw/pole saw storm damage kit for Livingstone SES, new vehicle accessories such as bull bar and winch for Gracemere SES and infrastructure for the Rockhampton SES unit.
