Letters: The kindness of strangers

Benefit for Shirley youngster brought much-needed aid

Thanks to our community Zoe’s benefit concert was a huge success.

Thank you to all the bands that played, the Norte staff who provided food, and all the businesses that donated to the silent auction.

We were blown away by how the people in our community showed their support, the generosity from family, friends, neighbors and even complete strangers who gave to our sweet Zoe girl.

A hospital bed was donated to Zoe, so the rest of the money raised will go to the Mimi House for playground equipment and some to Zoe’s therapy costs.

Seriously, there are no words to describe how thankful we are.

From a very appreciative and overwhelmed Nicholson family, Thank-you!

Kier Nicholson

Shirley
