Family thanks locals

KYLIE Goodwin and Melissa Stone are very grateful for the support the Whitsunday community has shown for their young nephew Connor.

Last Friday, Banjo's Bar and Bistro in Cannonvale held a fundraising night to help Connor, 10, whose father recently died at just 35.

“We appreciate the support and compassion we have been shown by everyone,” said Mrs Goodwin.

The family visited Banjo's on Tuesday night to express their gratitude towards all those who attended the event.

“We have been blown away by the community's support,” said Mrs Stone.

Connor is now living with his mother in Brisbane.
