Gold Coast City Marina and Shipyard (GCCM) has committed to donate 10% of all March shipyard haulout fees to the flood relief effort through Sisters of the North for those affected in Northwest Queensland.
“Our Cattle Friends in Northern Queensland have experienced an unprecedented natural disaster. Families have lost their homes, their vehicles, their pets, their stock, their income.
Tragically, these same families have also been battling to keep their stock alive during the drought over the last seven years. In our own small way we can and we will make a difference and help these people to regroup and rebuild,” stated GCCM’s CEO, Mr Trenton Gay.
Through the ‘Sisters of the North’ support group, GCCM will donate 10% of fees for every lift on the 50 and 250 tonne travelifts. This money will go directly to the families affected by the flood to assist them to rebuild homes, lives and livelihoods.
My Gay continued “We are proud to work together with our customers and our onsite partners to provide some much-needed support to others who are doing it tough.”
“Sisters of the North” is the brainchild of a group of women who want to encourage connection, community and empowerment as a means of developing resilience against any adversity potentially experienced.
With the unprecedented and devastating floods in North West Queensland, they have focused our efforts onto fundraiser for those affected in the Richmond, Cloncurry, Julia Creek, Winton and Normanton Shires.
