Lets get Richard the help he needs!


Last week our intrepid adventurer brother Richard (aka Kaptain Morgan) had a terrible climbing accident, falling 30 metres on Mt Arapiles in Victoria, Australia.

Richard suffered multiple fractures and, more worrying, bleeds on the brain. He was in a coma for four days and while now thankfully conscious, is still in intensive care, and facing the fight of his life.

We know Richard has a fighting spirit and we want to help him now as he recovers.

To help on his road to recovery we are raising funds to help cover the cost of airlifting him to Melbourne, which without a doubt saved his life.

Any extra money donated will help cover getting Richard home to New Zealand.

It's going to be a long, tough road back but we all know if anyone has the strength, determination and fortitude required it's our son, brother, uncle and friend Richard. Every donation helps. Much love and thanks--
