When a natural disaster strikes, RACQ Foundation is there to help those in need. The Foundation helps Queensland community groups recover from severe weather events including the tornadoes that tore through the Burnett region in November last year.
The RACQ Foundation approached QDO and offered to assist members who, months later were still cleaning up and repairing buildings, fences and yards damaged by the strong winds and driving rain.
Seven dairy farms in South Burnett Region were assisted by twelve RACQ staff (6 mechanical, 6 non-mechanical) during a week-long project. Over forty mechanical items were serviced/repaired (tractors, machinery, harvesters, vehicles, 4X4, motorbikes); 3km of fencing erected, 2 buildings painted and 3 gardens established.
QDO wishes to thank RACQ for reaching out and offering much needed assistance to members.
