Buddies' capacity to help asylum seekers and refugees relies on fundraising and donations. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, two of our regular fundraising activities in particular – manning the carpark at the Eumundi Markets and holding sausage sizzles at Bunnings – are no longer possible.
Cancelling monthly meetings also means we currently receive no one-off donations from this source.
To ensure we are able to continue our support of refugees we are asking our Bulletin readers to help in one or more of the following ways:
1 BECOME A REGULAR MONTHLY DONOR VIA DIRECT DEBIT TO BUDDIES
No amount is too small – you can donate as little as $1 per month! Simply go to your internet banking site and organise a recurring monthly payment using the details below**.
Please make the entry 'Donation (your name)'
For those who prefer not to use internet banking, this can be organised in person at your bank if it is still open for business. Organising a recurring monthly payment only needs to be done once.
2 MAKE A ONE-OFF DONATION
Please use the details below.**
