Alesha Raises Funds for the NSW Rural Fire Service

Australia is facing one of its biggest challenges in decades and for a native and one of our own – Alesha Hancock – this is particularly devasting. Being thousands of miles away and feeling helpless, whilst bushfires burn out of control, destroying entire communities, native ecosystems and millions of hectares of bushland.

Not being one to sit back, Alesha has set up her own crowdfunding page in support of the NSW Rural Fire Service. This service is predominately made up of brave volunteers that have been working selflessly and tirelessly around the clock to save as many lives, homes, businesses and as much native land as possible. The money that is raised will go towards buying resources needed to continue to fight the fires for the weeks/months ahead.

Just think, by forgoing that cup of coffee or a soft drink just once, and instead donating that £3 per cup, we all could really make such a huge difference. All at D2 Rail, are all firmly behind this campaign.

Here are a few statistics to help put this crisis into perspective:

  • 23 people have been killed directly due to these fires
  • More than 1,700 homes in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia have been destroyed
  • 4 million hectares has been burned in all states and territories (excluding NT) since the start of the fire season – 4.9 million of this in NSW
  • Almost half a billion animals have been killed with fears entire species may have been wiped out

The crowd funding* page, is linked below. So do please donate if you can. If not, then do please pray for rain. The page will be open until 31st January 2020.

Any help or support you can spare will be gratefully appreciated. If you have any questions about this campaign, please email alesha.hancock@d2rc.co.uk
