The current bushfire crises and the horrific loss of human life, property and wildlife has seen millions put their hands in their pockets to help. We don't all have a baggy green worth $1 million we can donate (well done though Shane Warne, that must have been hard to part with) but we know that the autobody repair community is amazingly generous.
We'd love to hear about your fundraising activities (it doesn't just have to be for the fire appeal). Send us a picture of those involved and some details about what you are doing to help and how much you have raised. Paul Watkins from Callaghan Collision Centre in Sydney wrote to tell us that his employer, Jason Hornby, is going match whatever each of the team contribute for the fire appeals urging us to challenge other shops and industry suppliers to do the same.
The Paint & Panel team hopes that all of our readers are safe and continue to stay safe over the coming weeks from the bushfires.To those from our industry who are volunteer firefighters, thank you, thank you, thank you for your amazing efforts and bravery.
