I am writing to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to the Alumni for their generous support of my recent campaign to help fund the costs of a winter tire package and general maintenance expenses of my wheelchair van. I am happy to say that the majority of the contributions came from rugby guys, particularly Balmy Beach RFC Alumni! Up the Beach!
Last winter was my first winter driving the new van. I learned from that experience that I would definitely need winter tires to be able to operate the van safely in our winter driving conditions with snow and ice covered roads. My van has a 12-inch lowered floor so I need tires that provide good traction in the snow and good handling.
To date, my campaign has raised $3,070 ($3,345 – less website and transaction fees). Anyone who still wishes to contribute may do so until December 31, 2015. Any amount is welcome!
