The Island will be raising money for those affected by the apocalyptic wildfires in Australia today.

An event at Ebenezer Hall in Kirk Michael will see participants raise funds for firefighters, animals and people affected by the fires.

The event runs from 10am to 1pm.

This week, prisoners at Jurby prison got into the spirit of giving by making vital equipment for wildlife caught up in the blazes.

Two inmates made dozens of decorative wallaby pouches to send to Australia.
