A group of Sydney schoolgirls are at the forefront of the Australian public's fire relief efforts, raising thousands of dollars through the time-honoured business of a lemonade stand.
Manly West Public School students Trinity, Giselle, Izzy, Ruby, Chase, Maggie and Jade, have been running a fundraising lemonade and cake stall for the past four days.
By this afternoon, they had raised more than $2000 for the firefighters.
"I just want to say thanks because they're risking their lives for our lives and putting their lives in danger," eight-year-old Giselle told A Current Affair.
The girls' remarkable efforts are part of a huge wave of community fundraising initiatives across the country.
