Volunteers and donations needed to assist Queensland recovery operations.

The Boating Industry Association (BIA) has issued a call for volunteers and donations to assist with recovery efforts in the wake of Cyclone Debbie which hit the Queensland coastline this week.

The BIA is asking for volunteers to form a team of 10 competent marine staff who are willing to assist at marine sites in Queensland. The staff must have good boat handling or marine trade skills and be willing to assist for up to a week starting from 1 or 2 April.

In addition, the association is calling for donations from industry members to assist with travel and support costs.

Aaron McKenna, BIA Queensland Manager, will be coordinating the BIA support team. Cash donations can be made to the BIA account at St George Bank, BSB 332 027, Account 552 004 720, marked Cyclone Relief, or by cheque made out to BIA Cyclone Relief.
