Home & Away Star Lincoln Lewis Donates Memorabilia to Bushfire Relief Auction Lincoln donates Home and Away ‘Beachside Diner’ memorabilia sign autographed by the cast including Chris Hemsworth’s signature to the Lloyds Bushfire Relief Auction. . . “When the fires happen, I immediately thought how can I contribute and I know that this piece is a part of Home and Away history, this is a part of a show that has been around for so long,” Lincoln said. . . “I want to raise as much money as I can, so I would love anyone to jump on and bid for it, 100% of the funds go to charity so hopefully we can just raise as much money as we possibly can,” Lincoln continued. . . “Every time I think about it, I look back and smile about this time of my life and the people I’ve worked with and the people that have done so much for Australian television. As much as I love this, I’m more than happy for it to raise some money for those that need it,” Lincoln continued. Just a few names to mention from the cast include Ray Meagher, Lynne Mcgranger, Ada Nicodemou, Tessa James, Jodi Gordon, Esther Anderson and Peter Phelps just to name a few. In recent days Lincoln even reached out to former Summer Bay resident Chris Hemsworth to get his autograph to help raise funds for the Bushfires, and he was more than happy to do so. “I have a lot to do with a few different animal organisations so I would love to donate the proceeds of this item to Wires. Everyone is feeling the impact and with the animals there is so much displacement and I would love to do my bit for them,” said Lincoln. . . #australianbushfires #australianredcross #homeandaway #sydneylocal #sydneyinfluencer #sydneyactor #disasterrelief #lloydsauctions #channel7 #homeandawayfans #lincolnlewis #nswbushfires #bushfiresnsw #nswfires #qldbushfires #auspol #redcrossvolunteer #sydney
