Giving Back to The Community

Conny was a victim of the recent floods in Carnarvon. The water level at the caravan park rose to over 900mm high which put 200mm of water through Conny’s van destroying most of her belongings.

Tony is also a resident of Carnarvon Caravan Park when the floods came and like so many others didn’t have the time to get his belongings to higher ground because of the sheer speed the water came down. He lost almost everything he had.

When Real Futures got the call to assist Conny and Tony we were more than happy to help.
