VANA Supporting Australian Bushfires

A National Disaster-Australia in the state of emergency & crisis.


Monday 6th January 2020
Note from VANA Chairman-Mr Chris Pecora

Dear VANA & NParcel Members,

Australia has been experiencing one of the worst disasters in recent memory with catastrophic fires engulfing our nation on a scale never experienced before. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people and families affected by this heartbreaking disaster.

Lives being lost, homes being lost, animals being lost, families being broken, and everyone is being affected across Australia.
Our industry nationally, News and Lottery Agents, is united in purpose, in this time of need.

Your Association VANA will provide information about how those not affected can donate (please see below) for affected members and the general community. You are NOT alone.

On behalf of the Board of Directors at VANA and our CEO Brendan Tohill and his staff we pray that the rain that has arrived in some areas today will last long enough for things to slowly improve.

In the meantime, VANA is working on other initiatives that can assist our members directly involved. We will be back to you on this ASAP.

Yours Sincerely,


Chris Pecora
