CONGRATULATIONS to 8 year old Gracie, who did an absolutely fabulous job supporting Bowel Cancer Australia through her annual fundraiser. Gracie chooses a different charity or cause to raise money for each year. “This year, I chose bowel cancer because my Great Poppy died of bowel cancer before I was born. It makes me very sad that I never got to meet him!!! I asked all my family, friends and my grade 2 teacher, to donate towards the cause. I raised $90 altogether. I really hope this helps other people”. Thank you Gracie for your generosity and for helping making a difference!
