hit105’s Stav, Abby & Matt rally for WWII veteran

Hit105’s Stav, Abby and Matt have reached out to help WWII veteran, 99-year-old Brisbane local Arthur “Bob” Jackson who was left homeless after a fire ripped through his Salisbury home on Sunday night.

Bob is being discharged from Greenslopes Hospital today, but his nephew Gary visited the hit105 studio this morning and the breakfast trio told him the news.

‘The community’s been wonderful, they’ve come together from everywhere,’ said Gary. 

The GoFund Me page has raised over $25,000, with additional help coming from individuals and businesses in Brisbane:

  • AVEO GROUP has given Bob 6 months accommodation.
  • Trevor from Gumdale Demolitions will now assist with the house removal. Assisting Trevor is Josh Reade from Building Certification Consultants, Graham from Timberlea Transport, Somah from Total Asbestos Removal, Aaron from Superior Plumbing, Michael from Hazsure Consultants, Viking Rentals, Tanya from Cleanaway and Tim from Aladdin Fencing.
  • Charles Bentley from Diamonds International has donated $1000.
  • The McGuire family from McGuire Hotels have donated $2000.
