Keiren helps out from UK

As a London paramedic involved in fundraising for the Australian Red Cross, former Bombala local, Keiren Rodwell appeared on BBC London News recently speaking about the fires in the local district.

All eyes have been on Australia throughout the bushfire crisis, with a familiar face appearing on BBC London News to speak about the blazes threatening the Bombala area.

Former local, Keiren Rodwell, who is now a paramedic in London, gave an interview about the Australian bushfires with the BBC earlier this month.

The BBC explains that an incredible one in four London paramedics come from Australia, and as such the London Ambulance Service has been working to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross to assist those affected by the fires.

During the interview, Keiren speaks of two of his cousins sadly losing their lives to the fires in Cobargo, and then of staying in touch with his family in Bombala as they experienced the smoke and red skies as fires burned nearby on January 4.

He shows a photo of the view from his family’s Bombala backyard when conditions were at their worst.
