Bundy flood victims focus of Camera House’s auction
CAMERA House staff have banded together to help out our flood-affected community by holding an auction to raise money.
The act of generosity began at the company's annual half-yearly meeting in Port Douglas where the attendees decided to do something to help out those in need.
"We were as shocked as was everyone throughout Australia when we witnessed through the media what the people of Bundaberg were going through following tropical cyclone Oswald," Camera House spokesman Craig Cheney said.
"We knew if we came together as a business with our suppliers we would be able to help out."
Bundaberg Camera House owner Scott Alison co-ordinated an auction, rustling up items such as a signed Broncos jersey, a dozen Western Australian wines, a 15-second television commercial, a telescope, a scanner and a large number of cameras from stores and suppliers and $6485 was raised.
The proceeds will be handed over to the Moore Park Lions Club today to be distributed to the people of Bundaberg affected by the storm and subsequent flooding.
"The local communities throughout Australia have helped us grow as a business and we are happy to provide support to the local community of Bundaberg during this tough time," Mr Cheney said.
"We look forward to seeing the money help the local community rebuild."
