Why the ride?
Australia and Melbourne in particular has been fantastic to me for both living and working. I’ve been able to do some amazing things, see some amazing places and generally have a brilliant life here. Above all, though, I’ve been able to save enough to train to be a paramedic when I get home and for that I am ever grateful.
At the same time I was doing all of this, funded by my working life as a patcher for a concrete company, I read that Melbourne's Royal Children’s Hospital had to make cuts to staff and facilities. There seemed to me to be an imbalance in that I was able to spend money on a completely non-essential novelty item at a time when a hospital for kids would be worse off financially, so I decided to do something, but with a typical Hunwicks twist.
This is a massive challenge for me and I’m constantly reminded of how lucky I am to be able to undertake it and call on so many good people to help make it a success. Have a look at the video and please ‘like’, comment on or even ’share’ my post and page because the more you do the more people will see it and the more money we’ll raise.
Thanks for your time and most of all your support.
