MEMORIAL DONATIONS remembering Ian Dimond

We will remember the life of Ian Dimond at a memorial service at Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Friday July 28th in Goondiwindi.

Ian’s family have requested that donations in lieu of flowers be made to TIE  UP THE BLACK DOG.  People wishing to make a donation to TUBD can do so by cheque (c/ PO Box 1278 Goondiwindi Q 4390) or by EFT: a/c name: TIE UP THE BLACK DOG  a/c BSB 064-415  a/c number 10158696     Our thoughts are with Ian’s family and friends at this time. We are grateful and humbled by this suggestion and will continue to offer support to people in rural communities.




Three wonderful young Aussie men, Eustie Hill from Mitchell, Sam Chisholm from Napperby Station (NT) and Mick Corcoran from Inverell have undertaken the ride of their lives–from Patagonia to Alaska!!! They decided they wanted to make their ride mean something and help others while they adventured along the way. So they’re fundraising for Tie Up the Black Dog!!! What a wonderful gesture!

The boys have created a blog called WAY OFF TRACK (Google it) and report in on their travels regularly. I will try to post some of their activities, though the internet has nearly defeated me doing everything else I need to do for the past month. Give me strength!!

We wish the boys well in their travels and hope they stay safe and well, with wonderful stories to tell on their return!! Thanks boys!!!
