TEENS SEEK HELP TO RAISE $2500 FOR TELETHON

Melville Times - - OPINION -

A TEAM of teens who held a 24hour cricket chal­lenge to raise money for Telethon need a lit­tle help to push them to their $2500 tar­get.

Bate­man res­i­dent Lach­lan MacKen­zie (16) and three of his friends took turns bat­ting for an hour each be­tween 5pm, Septem­ber 23, and 5pm, Septem­ber 24.

It was the sec­ond year the four Wes­ley Col­lege Year 11 stu­dents have held the chal­lenge at Leem­ing’s Striker In­door Sports and Fit­ness.

In 2016 they raised $2000 and this year they re­quire an­other $700 to reach their $2500 goal.

Bate­man MLA and former Wes­ley Col­lege alumni Dean Nalder threw his sup­port be­hind the boys by vis­it­ing them while the chal­lenge was on.
