Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick News -

TELETHON speech and hear­ing pa­tron Nigel Sat­ter­ley was awarded his own minia­ture Mel­bourne Cup at his an­nual fash­ion pa­rade fundraiser last week.

But he will have to wait un­til it ar­rives from Mel­bourne.

“I left it in Mel­bourne… it’s an IOU thank you from Vic­to­ria Rac­ing,” An­drew Le­mon, who ac­com­pa­nied the Cup to WA last week, said.

Mr Le­mon said Nigel and Denise Sat­ter­ley’s fundrais­ing fash­ion show fea­tur­ing Elle bou­tique had set a high “glam­our” stan­dard for the Mel­bourne Cup.

Elle owner Wendy Mar­shall said black and white was in for this year’s Novem­ber race.

The 3.5kg cup was also pa­raded around Princess Mar­garet Hos­pi­tal’s Starlight Ex­press Room dur­ing the tour.
