An­gus is back on his bike

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ALAN­NAH GREEN­WOOD

Corowa’s An­gus Smith is ready to ride once again thanks to the gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity.

An­gus, 11, had his push­bike stolen just be­fore Christ­mas and after weeks of wait­ing for it to be re­turned or found - with­out any luck - he thought all hope was lost.

Busi­ness­man Danny Allen heard of An­gus’ plight and put to­gether a fundrais­ing raf­fle to help pur­chase a new bike for the young­ster.

“An­gus had his bike stolen by a heart­less thief be­fore Christ­mas and as soon as I heard I knew I had to do some­thing to get him an­other,” Danny said.

“Thanks to the Corowa com­mu­nity we have been able to re­place his bike and An­gus now has a smile on his face.”

Danny of­fered heart­felt thanks to the com­mu­nity and all the busi­nesses that sup­ported the raf­fle.

He also thanked the Corowa Aus­tralia Ho­tel and the Corowa RSL Club for pro­vid­ing venues for ticket sales and the Cy­cle Sta­tion for do­nat­ing a safety lock for An­gus’ brand new bike.

The win­ners of the raf­fle were; first prize Doreen Hadley of Mel­bourne and sec­ond prize Terry Roach of Corowa.
