Flood Victims Desperate for Drinking Water

A local Queensland business that went into liquidation late last year, is doing what they can to lend a helping hand to the community, by offering their leftover stock to donate over 17 thousand litres of bottled water to flood victims with the help of Lloyds Auctions and Foodbank.

After the recent floods that devastated QLD and NSW, the owners of Quench Natural Spring Water wanted to give back to the community and struggling families the best way they could, by donating their remaining stock.

Although many communities in QLD and NSW have been inundated with water from the recent floods, they have been left with little fresh drinking water.

Even in one of the most challenging moments for Quench Natural Spring Water, they have found the opportunity to help communities in need.

“We are proud to be able to give back to the community with the help of Lloyds Auctions and Foodbank to help people who have been affected by the floods and hope this will make a small difference to help them get back on their feet,” said Mr. Richard Albarran of Hall Chadwick.

“This is going to be a long hall, it won’t be over quickly, and we will need supplies for up to 2 years to replenish the community,” said Mr. Bob McMillan, Food Supply Manager for Foodbank QLD.

The bottles are 10 litres each and there are over 1200 bottles in total that will be distributed to families in need.

The Queensland based business Quench went into liquidation and is auctioning multi-million dollars’ worth of bottling equipment and stock, across three separate auctions, all equipment in working condition and ready to be used.

“We are honoured to be able to work with Quench to help the community in a small way to help get them back on their feet. We have over 17 thousand litres of bottled water that will be dispersed to flood victims alongside Foodbank who are helping with the distribution,” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.

“We hope that this donation will help struggling families in need and offer some support in what a tough couple of months for many residents in QLD and NSW has been,” continued Mr. Hames.

There are two remaining auctions that both close on the 11th April at 10am and 2pm which can be viewed here.
