Creative Territory urges support for flooded Theodore

The small town of Theodore is just one of many Queensland communities devastated by floods, and Creative Territory has joined the push to help this community recover.

Creative Territory is providing support to the Theodore Flood Recovery Appeal and is urging its colleagues and friends to do the same.

Managing Director Tracy Jones said there were dozens of towns that needed support, but Theodore is the former home town of business associated Rosemary Campbell from Merit Partners.

“Rosemary asked if we could help out her old home town, where some of her family still lives,” Tracy said.

“There are so many tragic stories of people who have lost everything and we thought this was one way we could help some of those people more directly.

“I know there are a lot of appeals out there at the moment, but putting our focus on one town really makes it personal for our team.”

To date, the appeal has raised over $11,000 in cash as well as dozens of offers of in-kind help including donations of clothing, school books, toys, furniture and even help to clean up.

Creative Territory has established a Facebook site for the appeal and you can access it at this address:!/pages/Theodore-Recovery-Appeal/172433992794714
