La Trobe Muslim students have raised funds for the Bush Fire appeal.

Saudipic4StandardA group of Muslim students at La Trobe University's International College have raised more than $3,000 during Friday prayers in support of Victoria's bush fire appeal.

All up, La Trobe's International College has raised $5,000 in the past two weeks, through daily morning teas, collection tins and a two-hour cafeteria busking session by a teacher which raised $278.

International College Director, Martin Van Run, said the students – many of whom had not been in the country for long – were keen to contribute to the appeal after witnessing the devastation caused by the fires.  

The funds have been sent to the Red Cross.
