IT'S almost a year since floods swept through the Roma and Mitchell districts.

While it was a horrible time for many residents, it also brought out the great strength of the community.

Many people volunteered their time and money to help others get back on their feet.

To commemorate the people who helped during the floods one year on, we will be publishing a roll call of honour but we need your help.

If there is anyone you think deserves a big thanks for their work please let us know.

So far we've had a number of people come forward on our Facebook page, wanting to thank those who helped out during the flood.

Sharon Lee thanked the many businesses that helped out during the floods including Maranoa Laundry, Golders and Spiritus.

If you know a person, group, business or organisation that deserves thanks for their help during the floods, contact us via Facebook, our website suratbasin.com.au, email rebecca.george@westernstarnews.com.au or write us a letter.

Please include the full and correct name of the person or group you wish to thank plus a one-sentence explanation of how they helped out by January 3.
