Funds flow towards the family of local father

THE charity walk in aid of David Stevens at the weekend has added a massive boost to the fundraising campaigns that aim to assist his family.

David, the 2014 Coffs Harbour Citizen of the Year, is terminally ill and since the tragic news broke, there has been an outpouring of support for the family with several charity events organised.

The latest the pink walk was a grand success with more than 200 people turning out on Sunday despite the rain.

"We have now reached $4000 in fundraising from the pink walk alone," organiser of the fundraising Shell Crawley said.

Further events are planned in tribute to the father-of-seven, his three youngest under the age of eight, who is highly regarded for his many years of work in advocacy for disability services.

A stand up paddle board skills clinic is happening on June 7 at 10.30am at Boambee Reserve.

It is $20 per person, $50 for a family, and $15 if you bring your own board.

A trivia night is organised for Saturday June 27 at C.ex Coffs.

Tickets are $25 and people should arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

Businesses in a position to donate prizes for the auction are encouraged to contact Deb by email deb@ellison consultingaustralia.net
