Bark Run in Support for Killara RFS Brigade

16 September 2020

Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai) — Earlier this year, I joined community members and their canine friends at Claude Cameron Dog Park in Wahroonga, to support the efforts and resourcing of the newly established Killara Rural Fire Service Brigade. The Brigade have been working closely alongside our other local and well established Ku-ring-gai Brigade for the past two years. The event drew in a large crowd and it was certainly a barking good afternoon enjoyed by dogs and owners alike. Through the sausage sizzle, donations, raffle tickets and bandana sales, the 'Bark Run' Fundraiser collected over $700 for the Brigade. It was a day that showcased the power of true community spirit. This sum is in addition to the over $60,000 raised by our community through donations with the Turramurra and Lindfield Community Bendigo Bank for the Killara RFS Brigade. I thank all participants who enthusiastically took part in the events and everyone who was involved, particularly Turramurra resident and the 2020 Ku-ring-gai Young Citizen of the Year, Katherine Bowditch, who organised this successful day.
