Ted Butler and Steve Doyle : Two mates doing what mates do

Many in the Moruya area know these two; Ted Butler and Steve Doyle. Ted and Steve are good mates. And as mates they stick together through good and bad. Of late things haven't turned out so well for Steve.

L to R: good mates Ted Butler and Steve Doyle Hi there!

My name is Ted Butler and my good mate is Steve Doyle. Steve is a well loved character in the South Coast surfing fraternity, he is such a great character with a big heart and has an incredible positive influence on people. In recent years Steve was the Post Master at Moruya Post Office and is well known and respected in the local community.  Unfortunately Steve has contracted Motor Neurone Disease and I would like to raise money for research into the treatment and cure for this terrible illness.

I'm hoping that fundraising for this cause, which has become very close to my heart since Steve became ill, may make a difference in the future for other people. To date (Sept 4th 2020) the fundraiser has raised $14,172 which is incredible.

All donations made through the https://personalchallenge.gofundraise.com.au/page/Ted-63452661 platform are secure and will be remitted directly through to the charity for Motor Neurone Disease. While fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease my own personal challenge in this fundraiser is that at the end of 8 weeks from commencement I will have my hair cut SHORT!!!  For those who know me it has been decades since my hair was short. I realise that this is a very small gesture but it's my way of drawing attention to the serious indiscriminate affect that Motor Neurone Disease can have on a persons life.

So if you would like to get behind this fundraiser challenge Steve and I’d appreciate any contribution, big or small. CLICK HERE to donate
