Well, it seems that Robbie Ritchie’s story of needing urgent life saving surgery, has now reached Germany, thanks to a local resident who originally hails from Germany, sending in an email to a Hanover newspaper who then recently printed Robbie’s story!
The article that was printed, set off a huge amount of help offers coming in to the Ritchie family, such as accommodation, meals and so much more.
Our local Franklin County News paper has the article details.
Robbie Ritchie is quoted as saying that he is “humbled by the response of the Pukekohe and Hanover communities”
Check out the Givealittle site to see the progress being made to help the family.
but wait – there’s still more!! Keep an eye out for all of the fundraising efforts that the community of Franklin and Pukekohe, is putting together to keep the funds growing for the family.
There will be a five aside charity footy game held at the Pukekohe A & P Showgrounds on Sunday with games starting at 11:00 a.m, so if you want to register or need more info just contact Neil Northcott at firstname.lastname@example.org
Well done Franklin!
