A group of Bundaberg locals involved in Bundy's Polished Men campaign are shouting a big thank you to supporters after reaching their fundraising goal.
The men of the Bundaberg Pub Rock Choir started raising money for the campaign a few weeks ago, hosting events and activities within the region.
Ken Venus said the community support had been outstanding.
“Our initial goal was $2000 and to date we have raised $3086,” he said.
“Our music event at Oodies made $1855 alone, Sunshine Nails donated $200, Bundy Sheds donated $200, David Batt MP donated $200 and the rest was donated by locals who want to stop violence against children.”
Ken said the fundraiser was part of an important, national initiative called The Polished Man Campaign which has been running for the past six years.
The campaigns aims to provide counseling services to those suffering at the hands of child abuse as well as legal support and recovery programs.
Ken said there were many people and businesses who had supported the group throughout their fundraising endeavor.
“A big thank you to Troy and the team from Sunshine Nails, Hinkler Central,” he said.
“They not only donated $200 but they have been painting our blue nails through all of October for any Bundy resident for free and the team even volunteered to come to our fundraiser night to paint everyone's nails.”
Ken said if you haven't had the chance to donate yet, there's still time, with donations being taken until 14 November.
