As our nation begins to rebuild where they can and bushfires continue to burn another Mount Isa business has decide to lend a hand.
Already Golden Oaks gym have an appeal this Saturday and there is a Bushfire Fundraiser which will be held on Saturday February 1 from 5pm at Tony White Oval.
This time around it was Custom Steel Fab, who have created a raffle with 100 percent of the funds raised going to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital and Red Cross Australia.
Custom Steel Fab marketing manager Rachael McElligott said they were raffling off a custom built canopy.
"It's valued at $7000 and will be built to the winners tray and ute size," Ms McElligott said.
"People have all different types of cars here in Mount Isa so we can fit a custom built canopy on any of them.
"We have a lot of demand for canopies so we thought it was the most suitable prize for someone lucky to win."
Ms McElligott said their motivation came from Australian spirit.
"Just because we are so far away from the bushfires doesn't mean we shouldn't help support those in need," Ms McElligott said.
"We looked at doing a few different things like food drives but from what we heard the thing they need most is cash and we think this is the best way of achieving that.
"We wanted to donate not only to people but also the animals as well and noticed that Currumbin Wildlife Hospital had not received as much money as other organisations," she said.
"One of our own was actually caught in the fires in Bega New South Wales and even had to stay in one of the sporting centres, so it really made us realise how serious these fires are."
