One of our members received a bravery award today for saving the life of a truck driver whose vehicle was on fire when said member got to the scene.

Read about the incident here:

Brave pair pulled driver from flaming wreck | Sunshine Coast Daily

I'm enroute to his place to raise a glass with/for him tonight.

He and his wife haven't rested on these laurels - Honky is the guy who organises the Limed Off family fun(d)raiser that helps a little girls parents fund the medical research necessary to keep their daughter alive:

(this years Limed Off hasn't got off the ground yet)


We have some very good people on this forum :)

It is very heart warming to see that there are still people that unconditionally render aid when it's needed.

Well done fellas

You are far from being the only one in a similar situation, but, what changes things is the circumstances and how the event is attended. He did an outstanding job.

Dont let tgat deterr you from being a good semaritan,
Its just a public award, obviously the event was much more public.
Am sure your courageous efforts werent any different bro.

If we were in Thailand, i'd shout you 10 hookers bro!
I bet that would make you feel pretty special !!
