Bacchus Marsh residents may receive a knock on their front door from the Bacchus Marsh SES
this month, as they try to raise much needed funds to help keep the unit in service.
The Bacchus Marsh SES provides an extremely important service that helps keep the Bacchus Marsh community a safer place, but to stay active they need everyone’s support.
The Bacchus Marsh unit receives some government funding, but it is mainly through fundraising efforts that they are able to continue to operate.
If the Bacchus Marsh SES raise enough funds through this year’s doorknocking they will be able to help pay for new equipment and vehicles, help cover the fuel costs for volunteers, pay utility bills, and service their equipment and vehicles.
Members of the Bacchus Marsh SES are all volunteers and thanks to their services they were able to respond to 140 flood or storm-related incidents and 30 rescues last year alone.
So come on people of Bacchus Marsh, let’s help the service that helps us in times of need.
You can donate to the Bacchus Marsh SES when they come knocking on your door, or you can also make donations at Arbee Real Estate in Bacchus Marsh or by mailing to PO Box 69, Bacchus Marsh.
