Walan Miya assists residents at BlazeAid

Backed by a wealth of skill and knowledge, Walan Miya trainers’ Mick Mather and Maison Acton have assisted those recovering from bushfires on the Far South Coast.

The hard-working duo recently spent two days at the Cobargo Sports Ground, working alongside professionals and providing advice and aid to bushfire affected residents as part of an event called BlazeAid.

BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.

Fusion trainer Mick said the event was both enlightening and rewarding.

“We were able to assist these families and help with cutting felled-trees as part of the clean-up,” he said.
