WOW! The team at Frazer & Ryan Mooroolbark Pharmacy have raised $450 for Nate’s Appeal. They saw Nate’s story on the front page of the Maroondah Journal and just had to help. Thanks to everyone involved – and to all their generous customers too.

Many thanks to Scott Smith and also to Anthony & Lisa Giddens and kids for their fantastic donations. Anthony & Liz, welcome also to the BIG Buckers Club!
Massive thanks go to Terrie Fielding and Damon Lumley for their equally massive donations! Both have donated enough money to Nate’s Wheelchair Appeal to qualify them for the BIG Buckers Club -so well done to both of you.
Wonderful donations received from Virginia Hayton, Helen Coates, Shirley Potts, Jacqui Preston, David Job, Ruth Tenace & Donna Mulroney – thanks everyone!
Anna’s appeal is now fully funded from the excess donations from Rupert’s Appeal! Well done everyone. And even better news – when I rang to arrange payment with Balwyn Leisure Centre (where Anna’s lessons are) they told me that the Term 4 fees had already been paid by members of the community in response to the newspaper article – so our funding will fund Term 1 next year! Anna now has access to her special lessons until Term 2 2011!

Great news! One of our Board Members, Liat Harrower, is gifting IGAB with a range of equipment that was once used by her son, Mitchell. Mitchell passed away 2 years ago, aged 8, and since then much of the equipment has been on loan (free of charge) to other families in need. Included in the equipment is a pressure care mattress that is perfect for Rupert!
Many thanks to Liat for this wonderful offer – the family is thrilled and so are we. In keeping with the spirit in which Liat has used the equipment in the past, IGAB will be forming an ‘equipment bank’ of re-usable items to be made available on loan free of charge to the families of children in need.
The funds raised so far in Rupert’s Appeal will be put towards Anna’s Appeal and our next appeal – due to launch next week – so there are many wonderful flow-on effects from Liat’s generosity.
Many thanks to the Cason family, Janine Cottom, Wendy Henderson and Pam Brown for their lovely donations.
Heartfelt thanks to Jodi Kurtz and Johann Lam for their donations – we’re up over $2000 for Nate now!
Thank you to Rahul Sharma, Colleen & Hilton Hutchence, Scott Grinter, Ken Millsteed, Caroline Whiteside, Allison Beckwith & Michelle Hamer for their fantastic donations! It’s been a busy start to the week that’s for sure.
