Thank you to June

The day we met the wonderful June on the 2021 Signature Tour was a special day.  Her story of having to give up her beloved Hereford cows touched us all.  We have been in touch with her neighbour and have some suggestions of how we can thank her for welcoming so many sweaty cyclists into her home for a comfort stop!  We would like to raise $1000 to send her these special gifts.  Every dollar would be greatly appreciated.

The below is the message from June's neighbour Anne:
"June loved her cows so much as they had a bloodline that extended from her Grandfather. She knew she would have to give up the cows eventually but the drought forced her hand.  June falls into the ‘very hard to shop for’ category!! BUT I have come up with a suggestion that I think might be just perfect (fingers crossed) Since buying June some cattle is a little out of reach, then I thought she might like something associated with her Herefords and so I can suggest a Hereford Hide Rug for the floor in her lounge room. Now, I have done some investigations as to the best place to source one from and there is a company in South Australia called DS Horne that sells genuine hides. Their website is dshorne.com.au If this is what you decide to get June as a gift then can I strongly suggest that you get a dark red and white rather than a lighter red and white, as June’s cows were always a lovely dark red colour. I’m sure if you gave them a call they would be more than happy to help with selecting the perfect rug. Other than that, June did mention to me a little while ago that she was thinking about purchasing an air fryer! June always has Friday take out dinner (and when she says take out – she takes it out of the freezer!!) and she was asking me if I liked my air fryer… so that might be another idea. And lastly, June always enjoys a shop at Dan Murphy’s in Armidale, so that might be another good choice as well!"

Bless you June, who doesn't like a shop at Dan Murphy's!
