Young Sebastien is on the move

AFTER surviving a fall from a second-storey window at his South Grafton home in April, Sebastien McLachlan was flown to Royal Brisbane Children's Hospital in the Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter.

Eight months later, Sebastien's grandfather Rod Sheather says the six-year-old is doing well and hasn't had to wear a helmet since an operation in July to replace part of his skull.

"He doesn't sit still," said Mr Sheather.

Now Mr Sheather and the family want to give something back by donating the money left over from fundraising.

"We had a presentation night in October and auctioned a Richmond Tigers AFL jersey," Mr Sheather said.

The auction raised $482, which will be donated to the Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter Service.
