IN response to the recent
bushfires at Sampson Flat,
locals have been offering
their support by collecting
household goods and pet
supplies for those affected.
The fires burned more than
12,500ha and destroyed more than
30 homes since beginning on

supplies and goods," she said.
"A lot of Adelaide stores
are being cleaned out of stock,
and they are looking for more
"Customers who want to donate
money can do so by dropping in to
the store or by calling and I can
take a credit card payment."
Ms Kokegei said local woman
Elizabeth Hutchinson was a driv-
ing force behind the idea.
"Elizabeth came up with the
idea and she is working with Deb
Allen from the Naga Foundation
to help deliver the goods to vic-
tims," she said. "I am still taking
donations, and people can contact
me on 0416 950 618.
