The Scenic Group will donate AUS$500,000 (£264,000) to provide bushfire support and relief to communities across Australia.

Glen Moroney, owner of Scenic Group, said: “We are deeply saddened by the devastating bushfires in many parts of Australia, and the significant impact it is having on individuals, local communities and our native wildlife.

“As an Australian founded company, we are committed to supporting the outstanding work of the many emergency services personnel, community services staff, volunteer fire fighters and animal welfare organisations.

“Our donation will provide financial support to a range of charities and organisations who are providing much needed support to the many people, communities and wildlife affected by these unprecedented bushfires across Australia.”

The Scenic Group’s donation will be allocated to several charities and state organisations, delivering support, aid and services, including the Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Appeal, the Salvation Army Emergency Services, and several fire services.
