The Australian Fishing Tackle Trade Association (AFTA) has launched a Natural Disaster Appeal to support members who have been affected by the recent bushfires that have devastated parts of the country.
It has established a Disaster Appeal Go Fund Me page to help businesses and local communities get back on their feet and has set the ball rolling with a $20,000 donation.
The association says: “Australia is recognised globally as one of the most generous nations in the world. Generosity and mateship are core values that distinguish us as a nation.
“AFTA is leading the charge in ensuring as an industry that we support our recreational fishing community, businesses and organsations affected by these events in their disaster recovery efforts.
“Dig deep for your industry and help our fishing communities recover.”
At the time of going to press $15,600 had been raised of the targeted $80,000.
