Lion’s Club Fundraiser for the Flood Appeal this Sunday

Friday, January 14, 2011

Just a quick update. I’m pleased to report that Mum, Dad and all the kids finally made it home today after 5 days in the flooded campground. They were all a bit muddy and soggy but seemed to have taken the whole thing as an adventure.

The stories, pictures and surreal footage of the latest floodings in Brisbane have been pouring in and as terrible as the damage is, it’s incredible to see everyone pulling together to start on the cleanup effort. Again, my thoughts are with everyone affected and a huge thanks to everyone who donated via the link on my last blog.

I’m going to be down at the Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore on Sunday lending a hand to the Mooloolaba Lions Club and their fundraising efforts for the Flood Appeal. If you’re in the area, drop in to say hi and make a contribution. We need every cent we can get to help re-build parts of Queensland. We’ll be at centre stage from 1pm to 3pm.  

Then I’m heading off to Dusseldorf for the launch of True Sprit in German. I’m told it’s going to be very wintery over there! Brrr.
