Committee members Garry Turland and Gary Avis presented a cheque for $21,000 to Chairman Maurice Newman and Director Christine Holman during the luncheon.

Rina informed guests of the fabulous success which has been achieved to date by engaging over 50 students from Moss Vale and Bowral High Schools along with Tanagra Special School to attend weekly sessions during the school term.

“It’s fabulous that we have been able to provide a place and time when these special support students can experience the thrill of achieving a sporting goal. Whether it is as simple as kicking a football, taking a catch, hitting a tennis ball or hitting a boundary, the joy of participation and celebration is infectious and enjoyable for all involved.”

“The financial support from the 4K’s is critical to ensure that the Bradman Foundation can provide the weekly sessions on an ongoing basis. The benefit to our local community and these students will be seen for many years to come,” explained Rina.
