Whether it is teaching their children how to kick a footy, instilling life values, or just being there to offer unwavering support when their kids need it most, there are countless reasons why dads are superheroes – without the cape.
And, while our name may recognise women and children, here at the Foundation we know dads are also amazing!
In 2019, we celebrated dads in the lead up to Father’s Day featuring stories of dads from our WCH community, as well as running a competition where daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, wives and friends nominated the man in their life who is a Super Dad in their eyes.
From the 80 nominations received it was extremely hard to choose just one winner and as a result Charlesworth Nuts generously donated a further two Presidential Hampers valued at $99 each.
We are delighted to introduce you to the three winners – Mark Eldershaw, Don Ellis and Steven Osborne!
Below you will find their stores and all the Super Dads we featured!
“Eli is a happy boy who loves cars… he is the ultimate miracle story to be honest,” Mathew, Eli’s Dad, said. In November, Eli will celebrate his third birthday. Milestones and birthdays are incredibly special moments for Eli and his family, as this time last year he was undergoing surgery to remove the cancerous tumour in his chest.
