Telanagatuks Rees family are working their butts off to raise funds for GFA
The REES Family from Telangatuk are extremely thankful to the Royal childrens hospital for help saving their son Joels life when he had a stroke at JUST 3.
FOR TEN WEEKS JOEL learnt how to walk and talk again..now 14, Joel is fully recovered and his family for many years has done everything they can to raise funds for the Royal Childrens Hospital Good Friday appeal.
Joels Mum Karen has even setup a committee for the Good Friday Appeal in Telanfgatuk - that organises fundraisers like the recent 18 hole Ambrose golf day.
Joels - Karen says they have families from all around the area getting out and supporting the cause - collecting donations along the river and visiting Rocklands which is a well known camping destination over Easter.
