Claude ‘The Mowerman’ Harvey is set to once again mark Child Protection Week and Bravehearts’ White Balloon Day with a tour of Gold Coast City, starting in Coolangatta on Monday, September 6.
Gold Coast local Claude has been a dedicated fundraiser for Bravehearts for over a decade. To date, the 76 year-old has raised over $1.3 million for the cause and is well on the way to achieving his goal of raising $2 million!
A passionate advocate for the prevention of child sexual abuse, Claude is especially vocal in his support for Bravehearts’ personal safety program Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure, which he believes every child in Australia should have access to.
Claude has completed many journies across various parts of Australia in the last 10 years, pushing his lawnmower in support of Bravehearts and child protection. Along the way he is always supported by Bravehearts staff and volunteers, as well as hotel and motels (where his accommodation is often donated), shopping centres, local councils, local businesses and of course members of the community.
You can support Claude by making a donation directly to his online fundraising page, or by donating directly to the man himself if you see him on his travels.
