Appeal to help Parkerville fire victims

The Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund (LMDRF) has been activated to raise and coordinate donations to support the victims of the fire in parts of Perth hills in mid January 2014.

The LMDRF is the recognised state emergency fund and provides relief for personal hardship and distress arising from natural disasters occurring within Western Australia.

The LMDRF is run by an independent board and all the money goes to victims, with donations of $2 and above being tax deductible. No administrative charges are made by the City of Perth for support services provided.

Please note - donations of clothing, foodstuffs and goods are NOT accepted by the LMDRF and we have been advised by Volunteering WA that at this time they have more than they need so please NO MORE donations of clothing and goods.

An application form for those requiring LMDRF assistance is now available for downloading - application form
