The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund has now been activated, the Town is urging the community to donate to help those in the Wooroloo and Hills bushfires. While we can’t replace what people have lost, we can help ease the financial burden. 

The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund (LMDRF) is Western Australia’s official State emergency fund. 
 
Financial assistance from the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund supplements insurance cover, and people requesting relief funding should first claim from their insurance company and establish how much of the loss or damage incurred will be covered.
