​Nathalia in the Diocese of Wangaratta

Bishop John Parkes of Wangaratta has announced that the Diocese has partnered with the Bush Church Aid Society of Australia (BCA) to set up a tax-deductible way for people to show their compassion and share their financial resources with those in the Diocese of Wangaratta who have been affected by the floods.

BCA is also taking donations for the Dioceses of Armidale, Bathurst, Bendigo, Canberra-Goulburn and Riverina.

To make a tax deductible donation online, simply visit www.bushchurchaid.com.au and follow the blue "Donate" link on the right hand side of the screen to the donations page. Specify the "Kirkby Trust" and in the Comments box write the name of the Diocese. It is also possible to donate using a cheque made out to The Bush Church Aid Society, designated for the particular Diocesan Flood Appeal to BCA, Level 7, 37 York St, Sydney NSW 2000.

Each Diocese will ensure the money donated is distributed directly to those in need as soon as possible.
