Help Us Support the Australian Mutuals Foundation Bushfire Appeal
Published 15 Jan 2020
Members will have seen the devastating impact of the unprecedented bushfires which are raging in Australia with homes destroyed, communities devastated and lives tragically lost.
Co-ops UK, the trade body representing all co-ops, have been in contact with a sister organisation in Australia and have decided to partner an appeal being made by the Australian co-operative sector in response to the bushfires.
Commenting Ed Mayo, Secretary General, Co-ops UK, said "It's tough to imagine just how distressing this period is for many people in Australia. Going forward it will be hard for those affected to rebuild their lives and their homes. We hope, by standing together with the Australian co-op sector, we can help play a role in supporting relief efforts and future reconstruction."
To do this Co-ops UK has partnered the Australian Mutuals Foundation (AMF) Bushfire Appeal.
