Update again....

Well the fundraiser was an outstanding success! They raised $12,200! in one night - how's that! We needed $13,000 for both hoists and with the money already raised before the night we will have exceeded this amount!

So - as my other friend has already organised a trivia night in Dubbo for the cause we are looking at getting a hoist for the pool as well - this up till now was only ever a dream! How lucky we are to have such wonderful friends and a very supportive community around us. You only ever hear bad things about Wellington and Dubbo but hey the good people are there just not making the news!!!

That is fantastic - what a wonderful community you are part of. Hideous sentence structure but you know what I mean.

I'm so thrilled for all of you - this will make things so much easier.

PS My word verification is scale - evil blogger!!

What great news!! Good ol' Wello and Dubbo. Cheers to everyone involved. Great job. How wonderful that you can get the other hoist - gosh you guys won't know yourselves (and your backs will thank you). I am so chuffed (scottish for happy and excited).
