Bushfire donations raised at nursing home
Residents, relatives and staff of a local nursing home have raised $1000 in two weeks for victims of the NSW bushfires.
The money was donated through Peninsula Village to the Australian Red Cross on December 9.
Village chief executive Mr Shane Neaves said he was thrilled with the kindness of who have raised the money.
"Four lives and more than 600 homes have been lost, with this number expected to increase over the summer.
"The residents and staff at Peninsula Villages are experiencing only a small part of the impact from these fires with the thick smoke haze currently blanketing the Central Coast.
"It's hard to imagine being evacuated from your home, not knowing when you'll be able to return or if there'll even be a home to return to," Mr Neaves said.
"Many of our residents have lived through previous natural disasters, world wars and the Great Depression themselves and wanted to do something meaningful to help those families affected by the devastation."
