This year Bayside U3A’s Annual Fundraiser to benefit the  Robert ‘Connor’ Dawes (RCD) Foundation was a great success. Thanks to all who came along and supported this cause. Liz Dawes gave a very moving account of Connor and the short life he had. He was an amazing young man. The foundation that has been set up in his name is raising a lot of money for research into paediatric brain cancers.

A special thank you to those who presented the radio play ‘Well Hello! I was Lonely’ (by Jan Storey) and the members who worked diligently setting up the room, in the kitchen, serving and cleaning up.

There are some photos of the morning tea in our Photo Gallery.
