Bighearted Bywongians

The overcast day and slightly soggy grounds did not dampen the generosity of those at our loved annual (well it was annual, BC – Before COVID) Bywong Car Boot Sale.

As the sun came out, so did lots of locals. They were very quick to enquire about our big colourful sign (and our hand scrawled cardboard ones) stating that all funds raised today will go to support Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund. Not
only did they buy up big, but most customers gave more than the suggested price and lots of people just popped in and gave donations.

The aim of the day was not only to raise the much-needed funds for paediatric brain tumour research but to also shine light on the everyday diligent work carried out by Dainere’s family. They strive every day to prevent another child from having to
suffer as Dainere did.

$447.15 later I’m pleased to say that both goals were reached. Huge thank you to Bywong Community Association, my wonderful helper Ella and the local supporters.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to paediatric brain tumour research at Sydney Children's Hospital
