Thank you

The Wycheproof and wider community has shown great generosity thanks to the efforts of Laura Bish and Team Zeke in supporting Bianca (Banx) Kidd and her family Carly Parish and Bethany. Banx is in year 8 at Wycheproof P-12 and was diagnosed with leukaemia. Banx, Carly and Bethany wish to thank the community for the continuous support and good wishes. Banx has just finished the first phase of treatment at the Royal Children’s Hospital. She is in good spirits, coping well and is encouraged by the support. So far the Team Zeke appeal has raised more than $9000. To donate see the link on the website
