Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

 

Unfortunately my weekly correspondence to you cannot always be about strong sales results or other things that leave a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Recently the local communities of both Lorne and Geelong were rocked by the football accident to young Casey Tutungi which has left him a quadraplegic.

As a Lorne boy, Casey began his football career in Lorne moving through the junior ranks into senior premierships and then to the Geelong VFL team and more recently as co-coach of GFL powerhouse, South Barwon.

I personally got to know Casey, his brother Troy and father Chris when I was playing football at Lorne as well as surfing with both boys up and down the coast.

If there has been one positive from this tragedy, it has been the way the community has come together to support Casey and his family. An appeal has been set up with many fundraising events scheduled, inlcuding the following:
