Cyclone Debbie Rotary Appeal

Tropical Cyclone Debbie, a category four cyclone, hit Queensland’s North Coast on March 28, devastating areas across Queensland and Northern NSW. Communities located in Rotary districts 9550, 9570, 9600, 9630 and 9640 need your assistance. Governors Ida Portella, Craig Winter, Alan Stephens, Doug Sinclair and Michael Irving have set up a combined appeal to directly assist those in need following the aftermath of the cyclone.
