As Queenslanders count both their costs and blessings after the recent bushfires, the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) stepped in to bring hope, and a helping hand in Yeppoon on Thursday 28 November 2019 where 14 families tragically lost their homes.

RRT hosted a well-deserved community day out for all affected, and donated a $1,000 IGA gift voucher to each family, an RRT Family Food Box and served a free BBQ lunch and barista coffee.

Ron Arkcoll, RRT’s Chairman, said we’re stepping in to do our​ bit.

​”What we’re doing here is bringing together Christian values of care and compassion with Aussie values of helping a mate in need,” Ron said.

Yeppoon was the first stop on RRT’s Operation Fire Relief Initiative, and RRT will continue onto other fire-ravaged communities throughout QLD and NSW, with the aim of helping hundreds of Aussie families who have lost everything.
