Ms Van Hoof had orig­i­nally or­gan­ised a char­ity day at her busi­ness Kazam’s Bar­ber shop where she would do­nate all prof­its to flood vic­tims in her home­town but af­ter the cy­clone hit, she de­cided to ex­tend t he f undraiser t o cover all Queens­land nat­u­ral disas­ter vic­tims.

Be­tween a col­lec­tion tin and the pro­ceeds of the char­ity day over the week­end, Ms Van Hoof has raised $ 1175 for the Premier’s Disas­ter Re­lief Ap­peal.

‘‘ In Toowoomba, my Dad can’t even go back to his work yet be­cause it is still de­stroyed so that’s how bad it is in some places,’’ she said.

‘‘ I just want to thank ev­ery­one for their on­go­ing sup­port for us.

‘‘ If we all do our lit­tle bit to help, it adds up at the end of the day.’’
