Coast has a big heart

ELDERLY residents of Gundagai Street, which was inundated with floodwater and sewage last week, are getting a helping hand from the rest of the Coffs Coast.

Tracey Meehan, whose 82-year-old grandmother lost everything in the floods, said people have gone above and beyond with their donations.

“Someone has donated a house full of goods, which is just fantastic,” Tracey said.

“Coffs Harbour has a great heart.”

The flood meant residents of a block of 20 units in Gundagai Street had to throw out everything from washing machines to dinner plates, and with the majority of the residents being uninsured pensioners, dozens of lives were literally washed away.

But the Advocate has received dozens of calls from residents wanting to help.

Instead, anyone wishing to donate can contact Tracey directly on 0416 980 017.
