Lee Troop video message to Rory Wilson Auction Diners

On 25th October there was a Dinner (SOLD OUT) sponsored by Bellarine Estate Winery to conclude an online Auction of items donated and sponsored by local generous supporters of the Rory Wilson Future Fund.

The auction raised a considerable sum for donation to the Rory Wilson Future Fund.

CONGRATULATIONS ….

to the winning bidder for my 2000 Sydney Olympic Uniform but more importantly for contributing to the Rory Wilson Fundraising event.

As I stated in the video clip, the uniform is priceless to me and to be able to donate something of great personal value for this event is what is most important to me.

The uniform has no faults, has not been worn outside of the Olympic Games back in 2000, and was the uniform that all Australian athletes, who medalled and had the honour of standing on the medal dais, wore at those Olympics.

Again, my sincere congratulations and gratitude for enabling me to be part of this very special experience.

Cheers,     Lee Troop

The uniform was purchased at the Fundraising Dinner Auction, but the new owner has generously  re-donated the uniform back to the Rory Wilson fund who are auctioning it again on ebay and Gumtree here:
