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

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

There was disappointment for the Blockheads who came in third, but made the lowest profit on the show since 2014.

Fans hope to recoup some of their costs, with a GoFundMe call to raise donations aiming at $1,586,670.

As of Tuesday night, just $425 of that goal has been raised, with just four donations to date.

The blurb on the page reads: ‘Tom and SJ make a lot more money for the effort they put into building their home on The Block.

“Their positive attitude and willingness to call it what it was made them an instant favorite of the show,” it continued.

“Let’s show them what the Aussie spirit can do and help raise money to make a difference, start their family and make the 12 weeks worth it.”

The charity organizer is listed as “SJ and Tom’ from Gladstone Park VIC – however it is unclear who opened the account.

During the final on Sunday, the couple chose to come in second in the auction order, but their home only sold for $4,100,000.99.

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

“It wasn’t in our future,” Sarah-Jane cried after they got their result, adding that the couple had suffered a “huge loss” from taking time off from work.

“Ultimate high with the boys and now ultimate low. I didn’t expect to make a lot of money, but I also didn’t expect to end up with a huge loss,” said Sarah-Jane.

“It’s the way the cookie crumbles. I can not change it. Just get on with it.’

Host Scott Cam tried to console the obviously upset couple by saying, “I just feel crushed by you… You didn’t deserve that. We deserved much more. I don’t know what’s going on.”
