Young duo raise over $1000 for bushfire appeal

By Brayden May

LOTTI Waterson and Jazz Hone targeted raising $100 for the bushfire appeal - but they went above and beyond doing that.

On Saturday, the young pair organised a bake sale in Hume St and they soon found themselves inundated with support.

And within just two hours, they had raised over $1000 - a figure which was well above their wildest dreams.

The pair weren't short of support either as Lotti's siblings Jem and Tully joined in alongside their cousins Alfie and Millie Quinlan.

It was a proud family moment for Lotti's father, Luke.

“The support from everyone was unbelievable, I don't think anyone could have predicted how many were coming along,” Luke said.

“I think there would have been well over 100 people come at different points. The girls are absolutely stoked with how everything went, they couldn't be happier.

“They are really grateful for the support people showed.”
