George’s Gents with Ewen & team at Lady Lawley’s Cottage

On February 23rd this year, six brave St George’s gents successfully battled the elements in the Rottnest Channel Swim in support of Lady Lawley Cottage in Cottesloe. Declan Robinson, Aaron Shanahan, Aloysius White and Matthew Carter swam the 20km race, supported by skipper Nicholas Hill and paddlers Dylan Bedetti and Hendrik Viljoen. Photos of the team at the finish line can be found at the bottom of this page.

Lady Lawley Cottage offers respite care services for children and young adults with a wide range of multiple and complex medical needs. Declan’s twin brother Ewen has severe cerebral palsy and requires 24/7 care. The Robinson family have benefited from the services provided by Lady Lawley Cottage.

To say thank you and give back to this wonderful cause, Declan and his mates are aiming to raise $50,000 to purchase new equipment for the ASPIRED program run by Lady Lawley Cottage.
