On day 23 of Bob's journey he was off at 6 am with blustery winds. Not sure if they will help or hinder at this stage. It is also colder so Bob has the long johns on for the first time.
A huge thank you to Charlotte for her wonderful fundraising in memory of her Poppy. Charlotte attends the Australian International School in Singapore and contacted us to say she wanted to raise funds for MND NSW. Charlotte, with a little help from her friends, conducted a very successful puppy sale and also received donations raising $1,065. What a fantastic effort! A big thank you also to the AIS Singapore for allowing Charlotte to have this sale at school.

A big thank you to Quakers Hill Veterinary Hospital who have held their second HIgh Tea in support of MND. Here is what they said about the day, "We are thrilled to announce that our High Tea for MND has raised just over $5000! Thank you to all of our lovely clients for your continued support especially over the last few months. This cause is very close to all of our hearts. Your kindness and generosity means the world to us. We hope those that could make it enjoyed the homemade sweet treats and drinks. It's safe to say our vets and nurses are clever in the kitchen. Thanks again everyone."
