Media Release George Town Community Supports Kangaroo Island Bushfire Appeal

06 Feb 2020


George Town Council in collaboration with local volunteer community organisations, are devoted to raising funds for the Kangaroo Island Mayoral Relief & Recovery Bushfire Fund and will be hosting a Morning Tea tomorrow 7th February between 10am -11.30am at the George Town Graham Fairless Centre in Macquarie Street.

 The cost of admission is $5, the entry fee includes morning tea and a lucky door ticket.  There will be raffles and auctions throughout the morning and all prizes have been donated by the generous businesses of the George Town municipality with all revenue raised to be donated to the Kiangaroo Island Mayoral Relief and Recovery Bush Fire Fund.

While the fires have brought the Kangaroo Island community to its knees mourning loss of lives, homes, national park lands, animal and koala populations and more,  the KI Council and its residents have vowed to rebuild.  It is this fighting spirit that the George Town community embraces and is wanting to support with their fund raising efforts.

Rhonda O’Sign the event coordinator from George Council said “the immediate response from the local community organsations to assist in hosting the morning tea was to be commended. It is a true testament to the people of our municipality their willingness to rally, give and assist other communities in need of support is admirable”
