Sophie Martin Fundraiser - NSA

Sophie Martin Fundraiser - NSA

Last Thursday Tim Schifferli, Newman Sports Association President, and I had the pleasure of presenting the proceeds of the recent NSA Fundraiser event to Sophie Martin’s mother, Shellie, last Thursday. Unfortunately, Sophie had been in hospital and this was the first opportunity to make the presentation.

Using some of the proceeds from the Fundraiser, the Martin family has purchased a vehicle to enable Sophie to be transported in her wheelchair. Shellie said, “Sophie’s quality of life has improved already. A car trip is very traumatic for Sophie and is normally followed by a seizure but since the arrival of the new car the seizures have slowed”.

Remaining funds will be used to improve the Martin home to allow Sophie easier movement around the home, including building a new patio at ‘house level’ so that Sophie can spend more time outdoors.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended the NSA Luncheon Fundraiser in June this year in support of Sophie and her family. The event raised $20,000!

Jocelyn Hansen, Head of Primary
