Mayoral Relief Fund


The Green Wattle Creek and Morton fires caused significant damage to a number of our Shire's communities. Wingecarribee Shire Mayor Duncan Gair launched a Mayoral Relief Fund set up by Council to assist residents of the Wingecarribee Shire that have been directly impacted by the bushfires. 


Council is no longer accepting donations to the Mayoral Relief Fund in relation to the 2019/20 summer bushfires.

Due to the generous donations made by members of our community, Council was able to provide financial assistance of $123,000 to over 200 families and individuals who have been affected by the Bushfires.

Should you require any further information in relation to the Mayoral Relief Fund, please contact Council’s Chief Financial Officer on (02) 4868 0888.
