THE ROTARY Club of Kempsey West is collecting tools for the Upper Macleay residents who were affected by the bushfires last year.
During the November fires, 170 out-buildings were destroyed, and 70 out-buildings were damaged in the Upper Macleay.
With so many sheds destroyed, so too were farm, garden and handyman tools.
So, during this period of COVID-19, residents are asked to check their sheds etc for any surplus tools.
Tools can be anything from handyman (screwdrivers, drills, spanners etc), gardening tools (rakes, shovel, wheelbarrow etc) and farmers (fencing strainers, tractor tools, hoe, pliers etc).
The Rotary Club of West Kempsey is looking only for good quality tools.
Anyone with spare tools to donate can contact Robin on 0418 176-246 or tools can be left at Scott's Hydraulics, 2 Woolford Cres, South Kempsey.
Scott's Hydraulics and Rotary Club of Kempsey West will get the tools to the Upper Macleay for the farmers.
Meanwhile, the Rotary club has just finalised a watercolour painting raffle by Mark Pryor. The club would like to thank Mark for his generous donation and work in selling tickets. The profit from the raffle (the only expense deducted was the cost of printing the tickets) will be given to Willawarrin Fire Brigade.
The club thanks all who supported this project by buying a ticket.
