I’d just like to say a big thank you to everyone that turned up and donated goods on Saturday for the Music Trivia Night – a Fundraiser for Shannon at the Sports and RSL Club, and the Ratstars for organising this event, all money raised on the night will be donated to Shannon Barrett to go towards his physio sessions up in Sydney.
Shannon had a car accident some years ago which left him in a wheelchair. As Shannon is a Flinders Islander, the whole community got together to raise money for him so he could pay for his physio sessions up in Sydney and many other things.
Saturday night, the community managed to raise a total of $3419.80! If you include this with the group of islanders that raised money from the Pub to Pub, we have raised about $8000 as a community for Shannon. It is amazing that such a small community ( about 700 people ) could have such big hearts and raise so much money for such an amazing young man.
I am proud to call myself a Flinders Islander and i hope you all are too.
