    Premier welcomes Shell Australia support for TC Debbie relief

    Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has welcomed Shell Australia’s donation of $200,000 to Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund to support communities in Queensland and New South Wales impacted by flooding and the effects of ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

    “Shell has also advised its employees who would like to make a personal contribution are able to donate through Shell’s matched payroll giving to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund. Shell Australia's matched funding will be capped at $50,000,” the Premier said.

    The Premier encouraged anyone wanting to help their fellow Queenslanders to make a donation directly with a respected charity:

    “These charities are trained to respond to the needs of communities hit by natural disasters and can provide food, equipment, shelter, and other support,” she said.

    Goods and services can also be donated to GIVIT through their website www.givit.org.au.
