THE generosity of the Rose City community is more than one close-knit family could have hoped for.

As the result of a fundraising evening at the end of last month $15,545 was raised for Noel Loudon and his family.

Mr Loudon was diagnosed with leukemia in January.

"It was all pretty overwhelming and emotional when I was first in hospital in Brisbane for six weeks," Mr Loudon said.

"Then as the support from everyone grew I felt humbled and it gave me a good boost.

"The money now means a lot of pressure has been taken off financially while I'm not working.

"It will be a bill payer and mainly go towards the credit card which pays my medical bills."

Wife Mary-Anne Loudon was lost for words and said the funds raised made her speechless.

"The money is going to help out enormously," Mrs Loudon said.

"It has taken a burden off of our shoulders and will make it easier to get through the next round of chemo.

"The generosity of people really is incredible."

"We just want to say thank you to the Cowboys committee and everyone else.

"Also to all the businesses, friends, family and strangers that donated and to everyone that turned up on the night."

Warwick Cowboys Rugby League Football Club committee member Paul Hallman said a few friends and colleagues came up with the idea for the fundraiser.

"It was a really successful night with a large group of people turning up," Mr Hallman said.

President Don Browne said there was no contesting the fundraiser idea.

"The idea to do a fundraiser to support a great club stalwart received unanimous support from the whole committee and a big thanks goes to everyone," Mr Browne said.
