Red Cross - Drought Relief Appeal Fund Donation

Mayor Howard along with Councillors Sheryl Martin, Leonie Stein and Dale Jessup presented Red Cross's Howard Colvin, Manager, Emergency Services - Tasmania with a $4000 cheque from the Dorset Community.  Council's contribution to the Red Cross 'Help Aussie Farmers' Appeal will help drought affected families deal with essential day to day household expenses such as food and groceries, fuel, school expenses or rates.  Mr Colvin said "The Council's help is more than the number of dollars involved.  What will help struggling families to keep going in this record dry spell is knowing that they are not alone, that Australians care."
