Guess who we ran into today???

Claude The Mower Man, an icon, an inspiration, and a cause we love to donate to visited our office today!

EVERY step Claude Harvey takes on his seven-week "mowerthon" is a step towards a world where children won't have their innocence stolen.

That's the end goal for the Bravehearts Foundation fundraising icon.

Claude has pushed his coin-collecting lawn mower through unchartered territory in his 10 years of fundraising for the child protection organisation, this time travelling from the Sunshine Coast to Bundaberg.

The topic of child protection is something that Mr Harvey holds close to his heart.

"No child deserves to have their innocence taken away from them and through education we can prevent it from happening."

So far on his Bruce Highway tour, Mr Harvey has travelled more than 200km and raised $20,000 towards his $45,000 goal, which he hopes to reach before then end on his 47-day tour, taking his fundraising total for Bravehearts to more than $800,000.

"I'll just be pushing my mower around as usual," he said. "If you see me, come up and say hi and if you can, donate some money."
