Lest we forget….
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
Take a moment to remember all our brave fallen, and also support our past and serving defence force personnel this Anzac Day….
Go to http://www.anzacappeal.com.au/ to donate to the 2017 Anzac Appeal, supporting current and former members of our Australian and Allied Defence Forces and their dependants, another very worthy cause.
Darren’s Ride and Fat Rabbit were so happy to meet ABAWASM Ashley Hodson who was hard at work in Perth CBD collecting for the cause…good on you Ashley, and on all those past and present so valiantly serving us all…we salute you..
Fat Rabbit‘s adventures in the West continue…
Look who was spotted enjoying the sunshine in Perth CBD today…that little Fat Rabbit is really hopping around!
To get one of your very own or one of creator Wayne Patterson’s story books, visit http://carrottopisland.com.au/ or hop into Barefoot Books Busselton.
Just like Darren’s Ride, funds raised will help in the fight back against MND.
Donations of any amount are also always most welcome, more and more Australians are diagnosed with this terrible terminal condition every day and your change really can help to change lives.
