Victor P Taffa

The State Opposition today provided Bi-Partisan support to the Premier’s call for more donations to the Relief Appeal.

Leader of the Liberal National Party John-Paul Langbroek thanked all Australians who had already made donations to date, and taken the current balance to in excess of $84 Million.

“This is a fantastic result, although more money is needed to help re-build our state and re-build peoples’ lives.” Mr. Langbroek said.

“The past weeks have taken a devastating toll on our state.  The heart wrenching images have been seen across the world, prompting people to want to help in some way.  Money is what will truly help make a difference to flood victims’ lives.”

“Any amount of money, big or small, really will make a difference.” Mr. Langbroek said.

“I would like to thank members of the LNP who have donated multiple weeks pay to the Relief Appeal.”

“The money received will allow flood-affected households to buy food, toiletries, make temporary accommodation arrangements and buy cleaning products to help them in the long, difficult and tiring task of restoring their properties so they can return home.” Mr. Langbroek said.
