Community helps Indy Allen
$3000 and counting ... that’s how much has been raised so far to help the Allen family through these tough times.
South Grafton businesses Bent Street Auto and Power Results Insulation have opened their hearts and wallets to help the Allens as they wait for a liver transplant for their beautiful daughter Indianna.
The owners and managers Shane Cutting (owner) and Jo Doran (manager) have generously donated a fantastic little Thump Star motorcycle to be used as a fundraiser through Riverside Church, South Grafton.
Pastor Greg Holder of Riverside Church, along with Member for Clarence Steve Cansdell, have come together to put their time and effort into raising as much money as possible for the Allens.
Pastor Holder said the appeal would run until May 30. The draw will take place on Sunday, May 30, at the end of the service on that day.
The appeal will be run in a way that any person or business house that donates $100 or more will have their name or business put into a draw, and the person drawn out on Sunday, May 30 after the church’s service, will receive the Thump Star motorcycle.
Mr Cutting also contributed a $1000 donation along with the motorcycle, and has put forward a challenge to other local business houses to match or better the donation.
Pastor Holder said all donations were tax deductible, with cheques to be made out to: ‘Riverside Church Indianna Appeal’, and the tax receipt will be issued from Riverside Care, the church’s registered community charity arm.
Pastor Holder also said that this was just another opportunity for the people of Grafton to again show their support and compassion.
The postal address for donations is: Riverside Church, Indianna Appeal, PO Box 561, Grafton NSW 2460, or; donations can be left at Riverside Church, 54-56 Bent Street, South Grafton, or; Steve Cansdell’s Office in Prince Street, Grafton.
