BlazeAid calls for volunteers to help clean up

FLOOD-AFFECTED rural property owners across Queensland are receiving a helping hand as volunteers join BlazeAid camps across the region to enable farmers to get up and running again.

But with an enormous amount of work still to do, camp co-ordinators in Gin Gin, Mundubbera, Biggenden and Monto are in desperate need of more volunteers.

Gin Gin camp co-ordinator Bev Kane said the camp at the showgrounds had been up and running since March 14.

"With Easter over we're hoping to see more volunteers," she said.

"We've got 10 on our books and another four or five coming this week."

At Mundubbera, the camp has been operational since early February.

Grey nomads in particular are encouraged to bring their camper van, caravan or tent and set up to lend a hand.
