Theodore Recovery Appeal tops $50,000

The appeal to raise money for the people of Theodore impacted by recent floods has now topped $50,000.

Supported by Creative Territory and our friends at Merit Partners in Darwin, the appeal is providing a double bonus for residents and businesses in the small community west of Rockhampton.

All cash is being converted into vouchers that can only be redeemed at local businesses. This means all the money raised will stay in Theodore.

Creative Territory managing director Tracy Jones said while there were thousands of people in need across Australia from these devastating floods, supporting the people of Theodore is a way of making a tangible connection with a single community.

"It's great to read the posts on the Facebook site from Theodore residents who are starting to put their lives back together and to see their strength and humour come through in their photos and stories," Tracy said.

You can support the people of Theodore through their Facebook page or by visiting their Theodore Rebuilds website.
