Gaye Andrews


KOB Trustee Gaye Andrews rode the Wattyl Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge 2009 to raise funds for KOB. This was a 'first time'  for Gaye. She trained consistently and although she found it "rather challenging" she completed the ride fresh and exhillerated. Gaye raised enough funds to give two kids the opportunity to go on the 2010 KOB programme. Outstanding effort.. thanks Gaye!"

Jenny Phelps

KOB supporter Jenny Phelps (of Hamilton) encouraged a large number of friends to all sponsor an average of $5 for Gaye's ride.  Gail Clark, together with Jenny and her friends have provided another kid the opportunity to go on the KOB programme 2010. Fantastic Jenny and Gail. KOB thanks you!
