CAMS establishes Bushfire Support Appeal to assist members The Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) is pledging its support to those affected by the Victorian bushfire tragedy by setting up the CAMS Bushfire Support Appeal.
The appeal will assist the many CAMS members who have been impacted by the devastating fires that have claimed the lives, homes and security of many Victorians.
The appeal has been kick-started with a $25,000 pledge by the Victorian Rally Panel, whose members and areas used for rallying within Victoria are among the worst affected.
CAMS CEO Graham Fountain encourages everyone involved in motor sport and the broader CAMS family to contribute to the Appeal.
"While this is a tough time for everyone financially, I urge anyone who is in a position to donate to do so in this enormous time of need.
"Everyone at CAMS extends their heartfelt thoughts and sympathy to our members and to all Victorians for what is such an horrific situation.
"Already we are receiving information from our members of the impact this event has had on them and how they now need to turn to rebuilding their lives.
"Our appreciation is also extended to the CFA volunteers and other emergency and relief workers, many of whom are CAMS members, for their tireless efforts during these times of adversity."
Victorian Rally Panel Chairman and Rally Commission member Darryn Snooks said, "This natural disaster of unprecedented proportions has a direct impact on our sport and members.
"It is incumbent on us all to provide support as much as we can, so dig deep and let's show that motor sport, and CAMS, is there to support our people in times of need."
Contributions can be made through the National Australia Bank using the following account details:
Account name: CAMS Bushfire Support Appeal
Account number: 83-304-2862
All contributions will be donated to CAMS members and the communities which have been affected by the fires. Any leftover funds will be donated to the Red Cross towards the general public Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund.
