I have never purchased a shooting magazine in my 72 years of life and was surprised at how interesting the articles are and the good quality of your magazine; loved the 10 rules of shooting – aren’t these more or less the 10 rules of living?
My reason for buying it was to find an address to send this letter to. It is in regard to our grandson Brett Jukes who had a terrible car accident eight weeks ago and has been left quadriplegic with little progress so far.
He is still on a respirator and has a serious infection. Brett did his apprenticeship with Ibis Clay Targets at Barham and then moved on to work at Riverina Earthworks of Deniliquin.
I feel many shooters would know Brett and would understand the terrible blow it is to a young man not to be able to shoot or fish or camp or go out in the boat on a Sunday.
His family and friends are still coming to terms with this and he will need months of care before he can even come home, and heaps of ongoing rehabilitation.
Eventually his partner Ebony Storm, a very strong loving girl is hoping to have a house to care for him in the Barham/ Wakool District. His parents Mark and Kristen, brother Mitch, sister Holly and Ebony’s parents Shane and Jan are working towards this as well.
The people of Barham and surrounds have numerous fundraisers underway, for which we are very grateful. Brett’s aunty in New Zealand has started a Gofundme page in his name. Many people have shown support in this way and she is hoping to raise $50 000 for his rehabilitation.
We are so proud of Brett and what he has achieved so far and know when he is recovered enough he will go on to contribute in some way.
If anyone can help in any way, it would be much appreciated.
