Help those who need it most
SA has been hit hard by a number of bushfires across the state, devastating several regions including Cudlee Creek, Kangaroo Island and Yorketown. To date, more than 150 properties and hundreds of other buildings have been lost, along with countless livestock and native animals. Our hearts go out to all those who have been impacted by the fires - the individuals, communities, and businesses for whom it will take years to recover.
The best way you can support those affected is by making a financial donation - this will enable people to buy what they need when they need it, and take charge of their individual recovery process.
100% of your generous donation will be directed to locals affected and will help them to renew, rebuild and restore.
Please note when you click on the donate link below, the donations page you land on includes a reference to NSW. This is because the donations to the SA bushfires are currently being processed by our NSW office. You can be assured that all funds donated via the SA page will go to support those affected by the recent fires in SA.
