Tsunami appeal fires up
By EMMA CORNFORD
FOUR Trenayr Rural Fire Service volunteers will drive more than 5000 kilometres during the next two months to raise money for tsunami-affected Asia.
Marcia LeBusque, who is making the trek with her husband and captain of the Trenayr brigade, Harry LeBusque, as well as volunteers Don Arthurson and Phil Bramich, said she hoped money raised would go towards building a school or orphanage.
"We're hoping it will go to Aceh because there's really nothing left there (and) the money we get will go to CARE Australia," Mrs LeBusque said.
"We don't know how much we need to get but we think the sky's the limit because it's not just the building but the stuff to put inside it."
Mrs LeBusque said her husband came up with the idea to drive to all the rural fire service brigades in the State after seeing the tsunami devastation.
"We wrote a proposal and put it to the Rural Fire Service because we knew it was too big for us. The support they gave us has been wonderful," she said.
