Lions Club helps cyclist on road to recovery
MURWILLUMBAH police officer Bill Chaffey, who was knocked off his bicycle by a truck on the motorway at Chinderah earlier this year, received a donation from the Kingscliff Lions Club this week.
Mr Chaffey, who is still re- stricted to crutches, is recovering but may never regain the full use of his left leg.
The road to recovery hasn't been easy for Mr Chaffey and his wife, who had to leave her job to care for him, but the Kingscliff Lions Club rallied to raise funds to ease the burden for the family.
Club president Bruce Murray said a charity night was held at the Good Guys South Tweed Heads store and managed to raise $1158.
"This money was donated to Bill to help with whatever he may need," Mr Murray said.
"We're glad to be able to offer some kind of assistance to Bill," he said.
"The Lions Club is always happy to help community members in need."
