THE Somerset community dug deep in the name of charity when Claude ‘Mowerman’ Harvey walked through Esk and Toogoolawah last week.

Mr Harvey visited Somerset as part of a 38-day, 1,400km tour of Queensland to raise money for child protection group Bravehearts.

The 74-year-old, who stopped at Somerset Regional Art Gallery – The Condensery to receive a donation from Mayor Graeme Lehmann, said he was well supported by the local community.

“Some of the pubs in Esk and Toogoolawah ran raffles for me, and every little bit helps when you’re raising money and awareness for such an important cause,” Mr Harvey said.

Cr Lehmann said Mr Harvey raised more than $1,000 while he was in the region.

“Somerset is a community that cares, and I was really proud to see everyone embrace Claude and the wonderful work he is doing, walking to raise money for Bravehearts,” Cr Lehmann said.

“We wish him all the best as his journey continues north to Blackwater, Emerald and Moranbah before finishing in Mackay on Wednesday, 24 July.”
