Members of South Brisbane Club assisted wherever the mud army took them as well as to those known personally to the club as past members and their spouses.

In the aftermath funds from our sister club of Amagasaki East were used to buy new white goods for families in the Lockyer Valler, to host a mental health first aid course and to support 3 local families financially.

Time was spent sorting and distributing the avalanche of donated goods that came from all over Australia, not only for people but family pets too.
