The Rotary Club of Busselton Geographe Bay has handed our charity a cheque for $14,000. These funds were raised through a golf day and cocktail party held on the end of the stunning Busselton Jetty in March. We are so incredibly grateful for this support. We thank all those who supported this event including its major sponsors the Professionals Real Estate Busselton and William Barrett and Sons. It means so much to our community to know you are behind us in this fight to make Cystic Fibrosis a manageable or, ultimately, curable disease. Conquer Cystic Fibrosis South West coordinator Taryn Barrett said that at a time when many events have had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, the generous support of the Busselton community was greatly appreciated. “We are overwhelmed by the support of this Rotary Club and the wider Busselton community,” she said.
“There are more than 3400 Australians fighting this devastating disease every day and for locals impacted, it means the world to know that the community is behind us.”
Attendees were inspired on the evening by a speech delivered by Cystic Fibrosis advocate Jackie Fraser, just four months after her double lung transplant.
The winners of the raffle held as part of the fundraising initiatives were:
1. Ron Mildenhall
2. Natalie pretlove
3. Fiona Byrne
4. Malcolm Craig
5. Craig Wilson
