CAMS Bushfire Support Appeal launched
- 12th February 2009, 7:12pm
The appeal will assist the many CAMS members who have been impacted by the devastating fires that have claimed the lives, homes and security of many Victorians.
CAMS CEO Graham Fountain encourages everyone involved in motorsport and the broader CAMS family to contribute to the Appeal.
â€œWhile this is a tough time for everyone financially, I urge anyone who is in a position to donate to do so in this enormous time of need.
â€œEveryone at CAMS extends their heartfelt thoughts and sympathy to our members, and all Victorians for what is such an horrific situation.â€
"Already we are receiving information from our members of the impact this event has had on them and how they now need to turn to rebuilding their lives. Our thoughts and appreciation to the CFA volunteers and other emergency and relief workers for their tireless efforts during these times of adversity is also extended, many of whom are also members of CAMS", Fountain added.
Contributions can be made through the National Australia Bank using the following account details:
Account name: CAMS Bushfire Support Appeal
BSB: 083 166
Account number: 83-304-2862
All contributions will be donated to CAMS members and the communities who have been affected by the fires. Any leftover funds will be donated to the Red Cross towards the general public Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund.
The appeal has been kick started with a $25,000 pledge by the Victorian Rally Panel, who's members and areas used for rallying within Victoria have been worst effected. Darryn Snooks, Rally Panel Chairman and Rally Commission member, encouraged all to get behind this appeal and stated "this natural disaster of unprecedented proportions has a direct impact on our sport and members and it is incumbent on us all to provide support as much as we can, so dig deep and let's show that motorsport and CAMS is there to support our people in times of need".
