RENOUF Cottesloe has helped client Glenn McDonald turn his sandy backyard into a play area for his disabled son Liam (6).
The Cottesloe fitness centre, along with Renoufs in Duncraig and South Perth, co-ordinated a raffle with donated prizes raising $9000 for the backyard makeover.
Renouf general manager Adam Mola said he met Glenn and his son two years ago and sympathised with his situation.
“I got to know what he was going through and he gets no help,” Adam said.
“I got prizes through my contacts and clients to help him out.”
Kambo’s in Malaga donated the main prizes. Liam was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and development delay syndrome.
Glenn became a single dad about two years ago and has juggled his parenting responsibility with a fly-in-fly-out job, with help from his parents.
He said the new back yard would give Liam the freedom he needed.
“This help is better than anything the government has done for us,” Glenn said.
“Liam loves it here (at Renouf) and the guys love having him here.
“Training is the only thing I do apart from looking after Liam.”
Glenn is renovating his Greenwood home to cater for his son’s disabilities.
