Dollars for Danyon



THE Royal Tavern Social Golf Club has donated $500 to the family of a young boy recovering from a brain tumour.

Ten-year-old Danyon Swift had a brain tumour removed in December 2003. Nine months of chemotherapy followed, and Danyon now travels with his parents to Sydney every two months for testing. The testing will continue for around five years. Danyon, one of seven children, is back at St Mary's School in Year Five.

The Royal Tavern Social Golf Club raised the money through raffles and donations to help with treatment costs.
