The Lynette Daley Fund
Update: Gordon Davis of the Lynette Daley Family has spoken with Jeremy Rowe of ReadyFundGo (as at 11.30am Friday 13 May ’16) and is sincerely thankful for all and any support for this campaign for the family.
Lynette Daley was a once high-achieving indigenous woman and mother of seven. Lynette was tragically murdered and left for dead on the beach near her family home in northern NSW. It’s been almost five years, but her perpetrators remain unprosecuted.
Speaking publicly for the first time on the Four Corners program recently, her family has inspired thousands of Australians to get behind petitions and demand justice for the failure to prosecute the two men involved in her brutal death.
No amount of funding will make up the fact that a mother of 7, a daughter, sibling, friend was lost and of the injustice that her murderers remain free without prosecution.
But at this moment we also can’t ignore the emotional and financial hardship endured by her children and parents.
Ms Daley’s sister, Pauline, said her sister’s death had changed the family forever.
“Life is empty now,” she said.“We don’t celebrate birthdays, Christmas anymore. Life is not the same. It’s never going to be the same.”
Lynette’s parents Thelma Daley and Gordan Davis have cared for their 7 grandchildren on a small income for years.
While I too am a member of the public who watched the Four Corners program and don’t know the family directly, I would like to give the parents and children of Lynette every opportunity to heal, learn, grown and just BE without the hardship of financial constraint. The least we can do is to give them a hand in getting along in life.
Funds raised by this crowdfunding campaign will go to a fund created for Lynette’s children and her parents to assist with costs of health care, education, living expenses and activities like sports, hobbies, birthdays and holidays – anything that might help make things a bit easier for Lynette’s family.
