GJ Gardner Homes were keen toget involved in a community based organisation and since Gerry has history withEsperance Goldfields SLSC it was a logical choice. His children Jake and Elliewere members from 2000 to 2006 and Gerry helped run juniors during those years.Last year Gerry organised $500 to help out to repair skis. This year histhoughts were to donate a percentage of houses sold during the months of Maythrough to December. Thus he was keen to present the monies to Ian Saunders asthe President of Esperance Goldfields SLSC, last Sunday and the sum of $2500.

In theindividuals, the gazelle Lucy Oorschot, showing true grit and determinationtook out first place with Sharon Henning second. The old man of triathlonsGraham Donovan led the men’s brigade first home. The team’s results saw thecombination of Sean Hazeldean and Cameron Saunders in first place.
