What The Blazes?

Home » News » What The Blazes?

You can find out all about BlazeAid from Oz if you come to this week's Tuesday Fellowship at 2.30pm. The speakers, specially flown in from Melbourne Australia are Tony and Tricia Wheeler. OK, so they also came to see family over here, Tricia having been christened at Buckingham Street.

BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, their volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.

Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.

BlazeAid volunteers have come from all parts of Australia, as well as New Zealand, Switzerland, England, Afghanistan, Canada, Germany, Austria, America and France. Their philosophy is not just rebuilding fences, but helping rebuild lives. So come and hear all about it. It's free, with a cup of tea and friendly company.
