To say that we have had a challenging start to summer is definitely an understatement. The devastation caused by the bushfires in the Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, and of course the rest of Australia is absolutely heartbreaking. Our sincere thoughts are with all those who have been affected. It is almost too difficult to comprehend what these communities have already endured…some have lost loved ones, their homes, livestock, properties, their livelihoods and businesses. The fires have also had a tragic impact on our Australian wildlife and their habitats with millions of mammals, birds and reptiles reported to have died.


It is with heavy hearts that we’ve watched the fires rip through our beautiful country, while our admiration and respect for the firefighters and volunteers has continued to grow. But we were left questioning, what could we do to help? As a company we have decided to donate a lump sum of $10,000 to The State Emergency Relief Fund (SERF) which has been activated in order to provide support for the victims of the Cudlee Creek and Kangaroo Island fires. An independent committee is responsible for the fair distribution of 100% of the funds to those most in need.

If you are also wanting to donate to these communities, there are various ways you can provide support including the options listed below. Every little bit helps and there is great beauty in the way Australians combine their strength and stand together in these times. If you are on Facebook, why not head to the ‘Events’ tab to discover what fundraisers and benefit events are happening in your local area. If you, your family or friends, are currently in a fire-affected area, our heartfelt thoughts are with you. Over the years, we as a family and company have received incredible support from our customers, backing us through both the good and tough times. We hope that you will also be surrounded with love and support as you walk through this disaster.
