Paul Whittaker, SKY News Chief Executive said: “What an amazing effort made by the CWA and the local Harvey Norman store to raise critical funds for those affected by the recent bushfires as well provide improved healthcare and rehab facilities. We’re really proud to have been able to bring Paul Murray Live Our Town to Launceston.”
