Dubbo Photo News - - Emergency issues - By DARCEE NIXON

FOUNDER of Life Char­ity Fo­cus Uganda, Moses Goire, vis­ited Dubbo South Pub­lic School on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 18, to share news about the school’s six-year-old spon­sor child Za­hara.

When Moses was eight years old, he be­came spon­sored by Jack and Dione Carter of Nyn­gan, which al­lowed him to com­plete pri­mary school, high school and uni­ver­sity.

Moses then de­cided to give back to his com­mu­nity and founded the Joy Blessed School in Uganda.

Over 500 stu­dents at­tend this school and 105 of these are spon­sored through Moses’ Life Char­ity Fo­cus Uganda pro­gram. Many of the spon­sors are from around the Cen­tral West re­gion.

Stu­dents and staff of Dubbo South Pub­lic School were touched to see the pos­i­tive im­pact that their con­tri­bu­tions are hav­ing on Za­hara’s life. Dubbo South Pub­lic School teacher Ali­son Emer­ton (who also per­son­ally spon­sors an­other child through Life Char­ity Fo­cus Uganda) with Life Char­ity Fo­cus Uganda Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Anna Carter, Founder Moses Goire, Pres­i­dent Dione Carter and stu­dents of Dubbo South Pub­lic School.

PHO­TOS: DUBBO PHOTO NEWS MEM­BER for Dubbo Troy Grant re­minded el­i­gi­ble mo­torists that a 40 per cent dis­count in reg­is­ter­ing car­a­vans and camper trail­ers be­came avail­able from Thurs­day, Novem­ber 1, pro­vid­ing a sav­ing of $471 off rego.

Pri­vately towed car­a­vans and pur­pose-built camper trail­ers are el­i­gi­ble for the re­duc­tion in mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax, but are still re­quired to pay the stan­dard NSW reg­is­tra­tion fees in­clud­ing the an­nual fee of $65.

Trea­surer Do­minic Per­rot­tet said the re­duc­tion will give mo­torists money back in the hip pocket and en­cour­age peo­ple to travel and do busi­ness.

Clearly Do­minic hasn’t fu­elled up in the West of late.
