Club seeks good cause

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

West­ern Bay Street Rod­ders is on the look­out for the next or­gan­i­sa­tion, fam­ily or in­di­vid­ual it can fundraise for.

On Jan­uary 25 the club gave $4240 to the Brodie fam­ily from Ti­tahi Bay, who they sup­ported through­out 2012. Tod­dler Flynn Brodie has a rare skin dis­or­der, pachy­ony­chia con­genita, and his fre­quent vis­its to Star­ship Hospi­tal put a fi­nan­cial strain on his fam­ily.

Street Rod­ders’ pres­i­dent Eric van Diggele says the club has devel­oped a ‘‘ life­time con- nec­tion’’ with the Brodies that will not be for­got­ten but they are now look­ing for a re­cip­i­ent to raise money for in 2013.

‘‘We’re hop­ing to get sug­ges­tions from the com­mu­nity and then the mem­bers will put it to a vote. We would love it to be a real lo­cal per­son or group, like Flynn.’’

Mr van Diggele says their fundrais­ing ef­forts would not have been pos­si­ble with­out Repco, who do­nated a num­ber of items for their big char­ity run in late Oc­to­ber.
