6 Ballarat, 6 Bendigo and the Maryborough Woolworths stores have answered the call for fire relief.
Shane Darroch, one of the managers at the Lucas Woolworths store put out the call 13 stores in his group (All of Ballarat, all of Bendigo and Maryborough) to donate a pallet of water (65 slabs per pallet ) there was no hesitation.
Shane says he then asked Rocka Mahar of Pipecon if he could deliver it for them , again no hesitation.
So yesterday 13 pallets of water was loaded onto the Pipecon truck then topped up with Hay from the Dunnstown hay runners and the great Paul Clark headed off on the long journey to Bairnsdale to deliver the precious goods.
Shane thanked each of the 6 Ballarat Woolworths stores , the 6 Bendigo Woolworths stores , Maryborough Woolworths, Rocka Mahar , Pipecon and Paul Clark for their efforts.
In all, half a truck of hay and 20,280 bottles of water was delivered. A tremendous group effort indeed.
