Tim first played in rock bands in the 70s and now combines his love of music with fundraising for Starship children s hospital. A healthy $20,000 has been raised for Starship over the past five years from rock n roll even- ings he s helped organ- ise.On Saturday he hopes to boost that figure by a further $8000 from a North Shore concert. BydayTimisaBir- kenhead real estate agent for Barfoot & Thompson whose bran- ches throughout the country fundraise for Starship. This year they re rais- ing money for an ultrasound machine. At this weekend s con- cert at the Northcote Bir- kenhead Rugby Club Tim steps in to help out Four Old Gits and a Drummer. The evening includes a barbecue dinner, auction and spot prizes thanks to help from sponsors. Tim says it s a fantas- tic feeling to help Starship and he s devel- oped a special bond with staff as a result of his fundraising. More than 6000 young patients need an ultra- sound at Starship each year and the machines are in high demand, paediatric radiology head Sally Vogel says. Technology is moving so fast. The new mach- ines are much more advanced. This machine will be particularly helpful in identifying life-threaten- ing blood clots, even in the tiniest of patients like newborns. It has greater resol- ution to help doctors examine smaller areas in more detail. Saturday's event starts at the Northcote Birkenhead Rugby Club from 7.30pm and $20 tickets can be bought at the door or by calling 480-9029 or 0274- 923-125.
