Burrum Heads quadriplegic sends clothes, books to Nigeria
BURRUM Heads retiree Chris Daley hasn't had an easy life.
In 1969, he became a quadriplegic after a car crash, putting him in a wheelchair.
Despite this setback he has gone out of his way to help others.
After reading about a similar charity program in 2011, Mr Daley has sent two shipping containers filled with donations to Nigeria to help the community there.
"I saw something similar in the Courier Mail and I thought I should do something like that," he said.
"We've sent everything from books to clothes and even spectacles."
Now he is aiming to fill a third container with items donated by the local community and businesses.
However in previous years Mr Daley has had shipping containers donated by businesses but this year they do not have one.
Anyone wishing to donate items to the program can phone Mr Daley on 4193 4086.
