WATCH: Tweed locals band together to ferry supplies to Northern NSW flood victims

A bunch of Tweed locals have banded together to ferry much-needed supplies to the flood-ravaged Northern NSW community.

Kaitlyn Merrin is leading the charge, sorting donated items at the Ray Pascoe Park Jetty in Tweed Heads.

“We are helping the boats and the jetskis get supplies to anyone that needs them,” she told myGC.

“We are taking donations, coordinating it with the boats, getting it to the right people, contacting the right people on the other end and working with the SES.”

Aaron Graham has joined the army of jet skis and tinnies ferrying the supplies up the Tweed River.

“I’m just helping take some supplies to the unfortunate people that have lost everything,” he told myGC.

“We are giving them water, food, baby supplies and whatever they need.

“People up there are still in good spirits. They are just grateful to all these people who are lending a hand and helping out.”

Ms Merrin said locals who want to help can simply drop off donations at the Ray Pascoe Park Jetty.

“If you want to help, we need water, fuel, food, blankets, mattresses, anything we can take to Murwillumbah,” she said.
