Over $40,500 has been given to The Fred Hollows Foundation,

enough to give 1,200 people their eyesight back.

Wow! Thank you all so much for your donations, big and small,

from the 1 day Walk, the Film Night and then

the 4 month Phil's Burke & Wills Trek.

Susan and I had a wonderful time, met marvellous people and arrived on our itinerary scheduled date.

It is a great feeling to have had the support that we received and to come home

fit and well to our family and friends.

Thanks again

Phil & Susan McDonald
