West Aus­tralia News­pa­pers and Chan­nel 7, sup­ported by The West Aus­tralian Re­gional News­pa­pers and Red­wave re­gional ra­dio net­work, are launch­ing an on­line auc­tion.

The auc­tion will be held to raise money for fam­i­lies af­fected by the bush fires in the South West re­cently, fol­low­ing an ini­tia­tive by Seven West Me­dia WA.

The six-day event will be held at www.Click­4FireRelief.com.au start­ing at 8am on Fe­bru­ary 10 and will of­fer prod­ucts do­nated by WA busi­nesses which will be avail­able for the pub­lic to bid on.

The West Aus­tralian Re­gional News­pa­pers gen­eral man­ager Ian Jones said some of the com­pany’s of­fices were in very close prox­im­ity to the fires and the amount of com­mu­nity sup­port be­ing of­fered to the vic­tims had been over­whelm­ing.

“Af­ter talk­ing to many local peo­ple who have had fam­ily or friends di­rectly af­fected, they are all say­ing they can­not be­lieve the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple, but the most im­por­tant thing that they need now is cash,” he said.

Mr Jones said he was con­fi­dent the re­gional busi­ness com­mu­nity would em­brace the fundraiser by of­fer­ing goods and ser­vices to be auc­tioned.

All read­ers of The West Aus­tralian, The West Aus­tralian Re­gional News­pa­pers, view­ers of Chan­nel 7 and lis­ten­ers of Red FM can also help by bid­ding on items in the spe­cial no-re­serve auc­tion sim­i­lar to the an­nual Click­2Bid auc­tion.

Read­ers, view­ers and lis­ten­ers have the chance to sup­port the cause, with the in­cen­tive of pick­ing up some bar­gains and ex­clu­sive “money can’t buy” ex­pe­ri­ences, like a train­ing ses­sion with three-time World Cham­pion Danny Green, a once-in-a-life­time con­cert with record­ing guru Kevin Bloody Wil­son and a “live like a mil­lion­aire” pack­age, thanks to Crown Perth.

The auc­tion will fin­ish on Fe­bru­ary 15.
