Bargain hunters flocked to Bunbury's CBD for the Australian Bushfires Fundraiser and Laneway Sale on Saturday morning.

Hosted by The Townhouse on Victoria Street, the event featured market stalls, food stalls, family-friendly activities, live entertainment, silent auctions, and raffles.

Businesses and residents from across Bunbury donated various items to support the event.

The Townhouse did enough to raise $7012.45 for the Rural Fire Service and the Red Cross.

The cafe's owner, Craig Lyons, said they were committed to helping those in need of assistance.

"We announced this campaign just last week, it was a very last-minute thing," he said.

"Since then, donations have been flooding in and people have been offering their support. The buskers, face painters etc. all donated their time to help the cause.

"Events like these illustrate just how much people really do care. Everyone wants to help."

On Sunday, the cafe took to social media to thank all those involved in the campaign.
