Newsletter July 2010

Thanks to everyone for being so interested in ensuring that June’s legacy lives on. Since my return to Australia in mid-March, the most frequent questions have been:

  • Is Klocking up the Ks still going?
  • What’s happening with June’s Foundation? Is anything happening on 11th August for the 12 month anniversary of June’s death?
  • Is there any fundraising in which I can get involved?
  • Will the surgery be staying open?

So – I thought a short newsletter with all the answers was the best way to keep everyone informed, at least until we get the new website up and running.
