Summerfield residents band togetherBack
Residents of Braidwood’s over 55s development Summerfield have banded together to help those affected by the ongoing bushfire crisis.
Tim Wright, Summerfield Constructions’ owner and director, says the residents “opened up the club house and other accommodation very early on to those who needed help as well as individual residents having those affected with the fires stay with them”.
“Summerfield residents have been contributing in cooking and other activities for the fire fighters and other support groups,” he said.
“The fires have seen communities all over this country band together to help where they can with the fires. While all segments of our communities are impacted, the impact on the elderly can be great, from those who may have lost their homes to those who suffer badly from the smoke and air quality, and those who do their best to shelter friends and family and provide support in every way.”
