Dear Friends,

Thank you for your kind support.

It is with great pleasure that we write to thank you for attending the John Skipper Kelly Fund Memorial Cocktail Party on the 24th of March.

We would also like to acknowledge our major sponsor – The Welcome Hotel  Evans St , Balmain for the venue and beautiful food : Whispering Brook ,  Red Dust Designs , Philippa Kelly, and Embellish atelier for raffle prizes, Guest Singers Therese Brooker, Brigid Kennedy , and James Kelly . Guest Speaker Michael Traill, Susie Russell , Sarah – Activate Australia , and Tess Kelly , and our  Volunteers –  Hugh Stewart and Hollie Wright. 

With your assistance we were able to raise over $15 000 for the John Skipper Kelly Fund – creating leadership opportunities for disadvantaged youth. The JSK Fund has grown over the past year, and we are so grateful to all who have encouraged this. As Ben wrote from Nepal:

Hi all! It’s Ben Kelly Jr writing from Nepal! I would love to express my thanks for all your support for the family and JSK fund in the past year. A few days ago I climbed the Kala Pattar ridge among the awe inspiring Himalayan giants of Everest, Nuptse and Amadablam, to build a small memorial in dad’s honour. Like that memorial, I hope the fund you have helped create will stand as a tribute to the man we loved and a continuation of the social work he set out to do.

I express on behalf of the JSK Fund Trustees and all the Kelly Family heartfelt thanks to you for efforts and contributing to such a memorable evening.

Kind regards,

Catherine Kelly.

 Trustee, John Skipper Kelly Fund
