IT WAS a brother's love that inspired one Rose City campaigner to raise awareness in the fight against the disease that took his brother.

Only six weeks after the Billy Wright Appeal went public in aid of Haemochromatosis Australia Steve Wright has left a lasting impression.

Mr Wright said the whole experience and public reception had been phenomenal.

"After one month I had banked $627," he said.

"I have also been overwhelmed by the response and support of the small businesses in town."

Mr Wright said he had several plans to continue to raise awareness of and funds.

"Peter Guy has come on board as the person for May who will grow their hair and beard until the appeal ends," he said.

"David Dyson from Australian Pro Poker has donated the use of his company and one of his tournament directors has volunteered her time."

It will be on Tuesday, May 29, at the RSL Memorial Club with registration at 6pm and game at 7pm.

The donation for the night is $6 for prizes and haemochromatosis.
