XXXX Island flood fundraising trip auctions off for $62,600

A TRIP for 24 people XXXX Island has sold on eBay for $62,600 with all funds going directly to the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013.

The trip was purchased by Queenslander Scott MacDonald on behalf of Workpac, an Australian recruitment company specialising in mining, construction, engineering based in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.

Jack Mesley, XXXX GOLD Marketing Manager, said the auction was a genuine chance for Aussies from all over the country to help their Queensland mates who have been so harshly affected by the recent extreme weather in Queensland.

"For those most affected, accessing funds to be able to clean up and rebuild their lives is vital," he said.

In addition to this eBay auction, XXXX has also donated $50,000 directly to the Queensland Floods Appeal 2013 and is currently planning a variety of initiatives to help out local communities across Queensland.
