A CARING Forbes woman has raised almost $6000 for Forbes and Parkes locals undergoing treatment for medical conditions in the past eight months.
In her third and final fundraiser this year, Yvonne McLaughlin raised $1800 for the family of a little boy who has been left blind after having two brain tumours removed.
Three-year-old Parkes boy Taio Henry is in Sydney having treatment and Ms McLaughlin took it upon herself to raise money to help his family.
Yvonne dyed her hair blue – little Taio’s favourite colour – after raising over $1000 in four weeks.
“He is young and everyone needs a chance,” she said. This year, Yvonne also raised funds for Danielle Mason and Ron Wardrop.
