HELP HOLIDAY ROAD ( the gauntlet and her crew )

$3,240 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 69 people in 4 months
Created February 4, 2019
Hi every one, my name is Shane and i am trying to raise money to help a very special and extraordinary family who have just lost their motorhome in the flood waters of townsville. This family consist of two adults (Allison & Peter) and their 11 children who are better known to a lot of people as Holiday Road . Peter and Allison have been confined to Townsville for about the last 6 months as they have a child in the townsville hospital and have been waiting for a positive outcome before being able to move on from townsville and head south. This family has not only just lost their home , they have lost their way of life that they have lead for the last 14 years all within hours. Some people may recall peter and allison from a current affair show called Sunday Night who done a little documentary on peter and his family traveling our beautiful country and others will know this beautiful family through The BIG RIGS MOTORHOME GROUP on facebook , which peter is one of the original founders of.  This family would be the first to help and the last to take and are in need of our help so i am asking all who can help to please donate.

G'day to everyone.

The floods here in Townsville have affected many thousands of people and we were definitely not alone in being displaced from our home and losing many belongings etc.
We would like to thank Shane for starting this campaign for us and to all of you who have donated your hard earnings to help us rebuild our life again.

"The Gauntlet"(our home) as seen in the photo was a victim to the flood and was inundated with water to the upper floor level. It has been our home for the past 14 years or more and is as such part of our family with many memories.
We are at present assessing the damage and it looks like we may be able to salvage her to her former glory with a huge amount of work.
We can't believe the generosity of you all in "this" our time of need. It has made us very emotional to say the least knowing that there are people who actually care enough about us to help us through this difficult time. We are literally lost for words and a simple thank you just doesn't cut it.
We're also aware that many other people have suffered greatly and we can't help but to feel guilty about the helping hand we have received.
Every cent that has been donated to us will be carefully spent to help rebuild "The Gauntlet" and get our family back on the road where we belong. It will also be used to help a few unsung heroes in Townsville that helped our family and many others through a very tough and traumatic time.
It would be naive to say our children haven't been affected by this incident as they watched their home go under the water. They too are amazed at this campaign and it has lifted their spirits knowing that there are people willing to help us.

As soon as our daughter is out of hospital and our home has been salvaged we'll be back on the road sharing our adventures with you all again for many years to come. Until then we'll keep you updated with our progress as we go.

Sincerely, Allison, Peter and the Holiday Road crew.
