The winner of the highest fundraiser prize was Natasha Lloyd Jones, my sister! This was a rather unexpected result which did cause some concern about possible "conflict of interest"
The money was counted and the winner announced by the Children's Cancer Institute, independently of myself or anyone from SBAR, so I was happy for Natasha to take the bike. She won it fair and square by working hard to get sponsorship from nearly every business in Bega. I think the truth is far more important than the possibility of false perceptions.
Although she had the option of keeping her prize, Natasha decided to raffle the bike in order to raise still more money for Child Cancer Research. I think it's very noble of her. It means the bike will go to a member of the Bega Community that supported her so well. Here are some photos of my wonderful sister from the day of the ride.
