Senior snubs lavish lifestyle to help transform lives

BALLINA resident David Lindsay could have bought a house, a Ferrari, or even a plane or yacht.

But the 60-year-old paraplegic chose not to fill his own life with these lavish, indulgent trimmings.

Instead, he chose to help countless others gain the skills and jobs they need to transform their own lives.

Mr Lindsay has donated $400,000 of his life savings to the future expansion of Summerland House Farm at Alstonville, a project which will deliver 30 new jobs for locals.

Thanks to this incredible contribution, the organisation now has a total of $6 million for the expansion and will begin a powerful new chapter.
