$10,000 for little Matthew

COFFS HARBOUR couple David and Samantha Jones are thrilled with the turnout at Saturday night's auction benefit at the Moonee Beach Tavern.

The event raised as much as $10,000 to go into a trust account for their son, Matthew, whose birth in December was traumatic and has left him permanently brain-damaged.

He requires 24-hour care with expensive specialised equipment.

Thousands of dollars worth of goods went under the hammer during the benefit night at the Tavern, where David works as a chef.

“The night was amazingly good,” an excited David told the Coffs Coast Advocate last night.

“About 300 people came along. It was better than we expected.

“I would like to thank the Coffs Coast community for its tremendous support.”
