Jane McGrath passes away

The wife of Australian cricketing great Glenn McGrath has sadly succumbed to her lengthy cancer battle, aged just 42. It’s been a well documented fight over the past decade, and I’m sure that it will not only affect Pigeon and their 2 young children, but many who would have known the family and feel like they know the family by virtue of Pigeon’s achievements on the cricket field and Jane’s sharing of her struggles.

In light of this sad news, I have decided to put the competition that I had running on hold, and donate the “prizemoney” to the McGrath Foundation. I was talking to Andrew (one of my regular readers, who has said in a past comment that he doesn’t have iTunes) at church this morning, and mentioned that I would donate the $50 to a charitable organisation if the winner so desired. The passing of a woman whose own plight did plenty to raise awareness of breast cancer seems an apt opportunity to do so.

My sincerest condolences to Glenn and his family.
