Jedi's New Hope Fundraiser

Opening 6:00pm Friday 23 March

This is a community-led fundraiser for a very special wee boy and member of the New Brighton community, 8 year old Connor Duncan-Caley. 
Connor was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June 2017. He has had several surgeries to remove the tumor and pressure from his brain, 6 weeks of radiation, and has just finished 4 months of chemotherapy. 
Connor has developed Posterior Fossa Syndrome as a result of his tumor which has left him unable to move or talk. He is very slowly regaining control of his motor development with the support of therapists and his loving family.
Connor and his Mum, Karen, have been living at both the hospital and Ronald McDonald House since his diagnosis and cannot return to their earthquake damaged home. 
This fundraiser will help towards the costs involved to provide temporary accommodation that will suit Connor's needs. Connor's father Mark was made redundant from his job a month ago and so funds are very limited in their household.
Karen and Connor head to Auckland in two weeks to attend an amazing rehabilitation centre to help him gain mobility. 
This fundraiser is community led and supported - all proceeds will go to Connor's family.
