Group rolls in to help Bailey
BAILEY Anderson's birthday dream for a motorbike may still come true after community members have started raising money for the four-year old who had his present stolen on Sunday.
Mum Alicia Anderson has been completely overwhelmed by the show of support from the Bundaberg community.
“It's exciting really, to see the community we live in is so supportive,” she said.
After buying the birthday present on Saturday in Ipswich, Mrs Anderson and her husband Adam parked the vehicle in a gated car park with the motorbike inside it.
They were going to buy insurance for it the next day, but overnight a man allegedly broke into the car park before stealing the present.
Hearts all over Bundaberg were touched by the story and Cirsty Murphy decided to create a Facebook group dedicated to raising money to buy Bailey a new motorbike.
By yesterday morning the Helping Little Bailey Anderson group had more than 200 members from throughout Australia and continued to grow during the day.
People are able to donate money, with details available on the home page.
And if more money was raised than is required to buy Bailey's birthday present, the Anderson family would donate it to the children's ward at Bundaberg Hospital.
