The Block fans start Go Fund Me for Tom and Sarah-Jane

The Block fans start a GoFundMe to raise money for Tom and Sarah-Jane after their auction day disaster left them with a ‘massive loss’

Fans of The Block have started a GoFundMe to raise money for Tom Calleja and Sarah-Jane Wilson after their disastrous auction result.

The Blockheads placed third during Sunday’s season finale, walking away with a profit of just $20,000 – the lowest earnings since two homes in 2014 made $10,000.

Viewers are hoping the fundraiser, which has a goal of $1,586,670, will recoup some of their costs, as the couple has admitted to losing money on the show.

Just $425 had been raised as of Tuesday night, with only four donations so far. 

The fundraiser’s description reads: ‘Tom and SJ deserve a lot more for the efforts they put into building their house on The Block. 

‘Their positive attitude and willingness to call it as it was made them an instant show favourite.

‘Let’s show them what the Aussie spirit can do and help raise funds to make a difference, set their family up and make the 12 weeks worthwhile.’

The organiser of the GoFundMe is listed as ‘SJ and Tom’ from Gladstone Park; however, it’s understood it was started by a fan, not the couple themselves.

During Sunday’s nail-biting finale, Tom and Sarah-Jane chose to go second in the auction order, but their Gisborne home only sold for $4,100,000.99.

That was just $20,000.99 above the $4.08million reserve.

‘It wasn’t in our future,’ Sarah-Jane wept after the auction, before admitting the pair had suffered a ‘massive loss’ due to taking so much time off work.

‘Ultimate high with the boys [winners Omar and Oz] and now ultimate low. I didn’t expect to make a load of money, but I didn’t expect to come out at a massive loss too,’ she said.

‘It’s the way the cookie crumbles. I can’t change it. Just go to roll with it.’

Host Scott Cam comforted the couple by saying: ‘I just feel crushed with you… You didn’t deserve that. We deserved a lot more. I don’t know what’s going on.’
