2012 40 Hour Famine

This is Lachlan’s first year doing 40 Hour Famine.  He and his mate Felix Taylor did really well.  After footy we had forgotten about it and headed to Coffee Club. The boys had given up not only food but technology and furniture. So the boys had to sit on the floor next to us whilst we had coffee.  the cleaner came over and asked if they were in trouble when we explained she sponsored them and congratulated them for doing a great job.  Later that night the boys went a little over board on the barley sugars having a sugar high and were very funny. But silence came and they had fallen asleep.

Great job guys xo.

We will all miss you! xo
