Pupils create kitchen in spirit of recovery

THE students of Maryborough's Trade Training Centre have been working hard for three months, helping to build a kitchen for a victim of January's devastating floods.

UnitingCare Community's Lorraine Bryant said it was great to see young support those who had lost so much after the record-breaking floods.

"They are doing a good job," Ms Bryant said.

Richard Jack from the trade training centre had been organising the efforts of the students, Ms Bryant said.

The project was largely dependent on donations from the community and the more money raised, the more work the students would be able to do, Ms Bryant said.

She said the woman the kitchen was being created for had lost many of her belongings in the floods and her kitchen had been left unusable.

Ms Bryant said many people in Maryborough were still feeling the effects of the floods six months on.

She said many victims were "feeling a bit flat" and were already anticipating what might happen in the coming wet season this summer.
