THE Mareeba Lioness club donated a cheque to the Nates Mates foundation last Thursday.
Nate has recently returned from Brisbane after his fourth brain surgery and is now recovering and awaiting results. The Mareeba Lioness club used their recent cake sale fundraiser to donate $500 to Nate in support of his battle.
The cheque was directly given to Nate’s mother, Katie Moule, who said she is thankful for the donation.
“The overwhelming support the Mareeba community has shown is just amazing,” she said.
“I get blown away every time; I’m constantly getting calls with people wanting to help and offering their support.
“It’s very heart-warming.”
Nates parents are “staying positive” ahead of the scans and are waiting for September when they’ll have more information.
Mareeba Lioness Club President Lyn Dyer was just happy to donate to a local boy in need.
“We donated to Nates Mates because he’s a little local boy that needs our help,” she said.
“I didn’t know at the time that he was a Mareeba local, all I knew was that he was severely ill.
“As a club were happy to be able to help even in the smallest of ways.”
