Yuletide picknick on hold due to covid lockdown

Yuletide is the celebration of the coming of the new sun, that the longest night has passed and the days will be getting longer and warmer, so on the last week of june join us and St Nicholas in welcoming  the new sun with a $20 donation to the Leukaemia Foundation

Remember to be safe with covid

On the 14th of April 2021 I lost my dearest partner Jeffrey Slater to complication of AML. He was a paliative care nurse at Penninsula health golflinks rd Frankston  and he loved this special work.

He was diagnosed with AML Feb 5 and we lost him just 2 months later on the 14th of April,  so I wanted to remember him by doing what he took great pride in doing and that is to help others, I am a dissability pensioner and have little in the way of funds to help find a cure for this insidious illness but I can at least do this.

jeff and I loved to ride our bikes somewhere and have a simple picknick of a sandwich and a thermos of milo, yup a couple of leatheclad bikers, we also had a teddy bear as a hitch hiker every time we went out. 

This illness can take anyone of any age

so please grab some tucker and a thermos and bring your picknick along with you and join us and a special visitor St Nicholas(Santa) who will be wandering around trying to say hello to everyone personally. This is very much in the spirit of St Nicholas to be involved in helping others in need

In Memory of Jeffrey Slater.

I am fundraising to help the 47 Australians who will know that they have blood cancer by the end of today — and for the 47 families who will face the same devastating news tomorrow. 

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money I raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives. 

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.
