Tanunda’s Brodie Healy is set to benefit from the generosity of footballers and supporters, who, on July 6, helped to raise more than $1,800 for the 17 year old to gain further independence in his quest to drive a vehicle.
Tanunda Football Club won the Vintage Cup on Saturday at Williamstown against Barossa District in the over 35s match
The dual effort from Tanunda and Barossa to support Brodie was spearheaded by Rick Lane, who also played in the match for Barossa.
Rick praised the efforts of both clubs to support the match and the cause with Brodie’s speech in the Barossa clubrooms giving players an insight into his quest.
Showing that even with cerebral palsy he’s determined to drive, Brodie hopes to put the funds towards the purchase of improved hand controls, which will assist him to drive.
