Sale’s Sporting Legends Friday night raffle proceeds were donated to young sportspeople preparing to represent Australia overseas Riverslea’s beach volleyballer Rebecca Ingram, and Tinamba’s motorcross rider Cody Dyce.
Rebecca was unable to attend because of beach volleyball training at the South Australian Institute of Sport prior to leaving for more training in France, and then on to the World Games in Cyprus.
Cody is training hard before heading off to the World Junior Motorcross Championships in Russia.
The proceeds of the raffle were divided and presented to the Australian representatives to assist with their travelling and accommodation.
Sporting Legends had previously presented both Rebecca and Cody with a cheque for $2000 each.
The Ingram and Dyce families were overwhelmed and grateful to receive this generous assistance.
Colin Dyce, Cody’s father, said he was humbled by the Sporting Legends’ generosity, while Rebecca’s mother Jeanette Ingram said she was surprised when Sporting Legends manager Ken Bailey told her that Sporting Legends was donating $2000 to Rebecca, but when Ken further informed her that the Sporting Legends was also sharing the Friday night raffle proceeds between the two, she felt the tears start to flow.
