Shannan doing well

Young Shannan Lawrence is reportedly recovering well from her injuries.


Whilst Shannan remains in a coma, doctors are pleased with the progress she is making. She sustained major injuries, and will be sedated for some time yet.

Funeral arrangements are not finalised, however it is expected that this will be in Sydney.

Brisbane Brass would like to thank the banding community for the overwhelming support of the Lawrence Family Appeal.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to the Lawrence Family to help assist with flights, medical expenses, funeral expenses & general expenses can do so via the Brisbane Brass Account. These donations will be forwarded on to Steve in due course.
