A CHARITY golf day may just provide a drive of a different kind for a struggling Lavington family.
The Albury Wodonga Insurance Professionals golf day has donated cash to a variety of Border charities in recent years and proceeds of this month’s event will go to Brodie Taylor.
The six-year-old needs a wheelchair and walker after contracting acute transverse myelitis as a baby but now the cost of modifying a car capable of transporting him, his equipment and family is close to $40,000.
His mum Del Taylor said the offer was just another amazing show of generosity from the Border.
“Days like this make us feel very humble, we are so lucky that they have decided to help us,” she said.
“With any luck this will add to the amazing people who have already helped raise money for the car we need for Brodie.
“We think that this might get us over the line.
“At the moment family outings are out of the question, we simply don’t have the room for the wheelchair and walker so we have to stay at home.”
Already 22 teams have entered for the golf day that will be held on Friday, October 25.
But organiser Debbie Mynett said there was still time for others to get on board.
“Ideally we will have 29 teams out there for the shotgun start just after midday,” she said.
“We can also still cater to people wanting to sponsor the day, either a hole with their banner on it or with prizes to raise more money for Brodie and his family.”
