Had a bit of new information about where the gumboots are going to.
I’ve also had it confirmed by The Warehouse that there are 1600 (not 1200) pairs of gumboots. Thanks.
They’ve been picked up and are awaiting their flight to Melbourne on Sunday. Thanks Qantas.
All the costs have been covered by The Warehouse, Qantas and Toll Group (an Aussie trucking company)
Operation Angel has determined that they are destined for the Lockyer Valley (around Gatton and Grantham). The Lockyer Valley is 70km east of Toowoomba.
I understand the loss of life and of entire communites has been significant in this area and the clean up for kilometres around is still designated a coronial scene.
Our thoughts are with the people of Queensland.
More commercial donations of gumboots, waders, mosquito nets, coils and repellent are needed.
