Central West WIRES teamed up with Transport NSW TrainLink to hold a fundraising morning tea for fire affected native animals following the recent Gospers Mountain mega fire.
The morning tea was held at Lithgow train station on Friday, February 14 and raised over $1600 for WIRES Central West branch.
Secretary Sue Wakefield said the function was a huge success and the money would be used to support feed and water stations around the Lithgow area and in other fire zones between Lithgow and Mudgee.
"The day was a great initiative by Jann Gardiner and the team at the railway station.
"The funds will help to support vet bills for animals affected by the fires as well as those orphaned or injured by other misadventure," she said.
Ms Wakefield also said WIRES vets were incredibly generous and do not charge a consultation fee.
"We still pay for any medications that are prescribed," she said.
She wanted to thank those who were involved in organising the event and those who purchased a tasty treat for a good cause.
