Homeless Diggers lose out due to insurance issues
The National Convenors of this event can only secure Insurance coverage for the one weekend, the previous weekend, when events are occurring in Brisbane, Ipswich, Sydney and Canberra. It is far too costly to take out Insurance to cover more than one weekend, so the Maryborough event, and those in some other locations have had to be cancelled.
While this is sad for those of us who were trying to organise it, it is even more sad for those who have already pledged to support us.
I would urge all those who were intent on supporting the cause to continue to do so via the www.diggersupport website. I would also like to personally thank the team at Hungry Jacks Maryborough and the Fraser Coast Regional Council for their support.
