Australian Caravan Club members dig deep to assist drought affected communities, the local Denmark community and Angel Flight at the 12th Annual National Muster
Australian Caravan Club members have contributed significantly to the call for donations to assist communities affected by the drought.
“Following the close of the donation period, I’m pleased to report that members have contributed nearly $2200 towards the nominated total of $5000. This was from both individual members and ACC branches. I am also aware that some ACC branches made donations directly to charities supporting the drought relief efforts. To all I say a collective thank you”, said Craig Humphrey, ACC National Chairman.
“Whilst the ACC Board had previously committed to match the donations dollar for dollar, the Club will, on the back of the strong member response, now increase its commitment to $2800. This will mean that the Club will over the coming weeks announce the distribution process of the funds totalling $5000”, said Mr Humphrey.
“The Club also announced that as a result of the annual fund raiser at the recent National Muster that $500 would be donated to the Black Dog ride. “This is an amazing initiative seeking to raise awareness and discussion of mental health issues across the country. We are very pleased to support the local Denmark Black Dog Ride group”, noted Mr Humphrey.
“The Club is also proud to support Angel Flight following a keynote presentation by CEO Marjorie Pagani at the National Muster. Club members have resoundingly sought to support the great work of Angel Flight and will donate over $300”, stated Mr Humphrey.
“I am incredibly proud of the members for the gereousity they have shown through these 3 initiatives that will assist each of the groups achieve their goals in the coming year”, concluded Mr Humphrey.
The ACC was founded in September 2006 and is now the second largest multi brand RV club in Australia.
