Local grower helps Lindsay, 15, in her cancer battle
IN TRUE Bundaberg spirit, Bundy Limes is hoping to help a 15-year-old girl as she battles cancer with the support of the community.
Bundy Limes owner Linda Vickers said the Limes4Lindsay fundraiser was started after hearing a friend's daughter had been diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma. Ms Vickers took the idea to social media stating: "Some friends of mine have just been dealt a bit of a blow. Their daughter Lindsay has recently been diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma which is an aggressive form of cancer,” she said.
With a desire to help the hard-working family, Ms Vickers said the fundraiser would run until January 31 and said for every $60 (10kg) box of limes sold, $20 would bedonated to Lindsay and her family.
Bundy Limes will also be selling $20 wall calendars with half the proceeds going to the good cause.
Since starting the fundraiser 17 days ago, Bundy Limes has donated $695.
