A car enthusiast from Southern Tasmania raised just over $ 4,000 for families affected by the Hillcrest Primary School tragedy. Danny Johns, of Bridgewater, led a convoy of around 150 cars from MyState Bank Arena to Zelda’s Bar and Bistro in Baghdad via the Scenic Route for a car cruise. At Zelda, raffle donations and other activities were collected before Mr. Johns transferred the money directly to families’ bank accounts. “I wanted to give them some extra cash flow right now,” he said. “I have three kids and I would hate to have that happen to one of my own kids. I’ve done charity cruises before and it’s kind of my thing to help those who really need it.”
