Victorian bush-fire book donation
South Australians collecting books for victims of the Victorian bush fires

visit to Yarra Glen

We just visited the small town of Yarra Glen. The friendly people of the relief center pointed us to the old IGA building where goods relief is organised. We were given a warm welcome by the staff of the center. What we noticed straight away is how well this center is organised. The manager, Peter, was very happy to receive all the books we were carrying all the way from South Australia. See below how the volunteers helped us to unload the first load of books:

We are very happy with this first step in delivery of books. Now we have to wait for a phone call that the 6 pallets have arrived and we can continue delivering books.

Blogging in burnt countryWe love technology, isn’t it great that you can sit in the middle of the country and blog away. At the moment we are on our way to Healesville to prepare for potential book donations to the relief center there. We just entered the burnt country, all around us is black and more black.
