Sprite Club of South Australia Supports the Bushfire RelieF

We are all aware of the effect the recent bushfires have had to the various South Australian Communities in the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island, as well as many other localities around Australia.

While there are many Bushfire Relief Fundraising events being held and the various donation tins at most shopping centres and retail outlets, the Committee of the Sprite Club of South Australia has taken a slightly different approach to the Bushfire Relief.

At our various social drives and runs that we are conducting, we will ensure that we head to these affected areas and stop to purchase either coffee, cake, meals or petrol from the retail outlets in these communities.

This will directly assist the financial economy of these businesses and communities and assist them in the major rebuilding process that needs to occur over the coming months and years.

While this may be a small contribution, the Committee hopes that the members will support this direct contribution with attendance at the various events calendared over the year.

Yours Spritely

Gordon Boyce (President) and the Committee

Sprite Club of South Australia
