Bristow Family Appeal

Paul Anthony Bristow (Coota) suddenly passed away earlier this week. He leaves behind his loving wife Sonja and 5 beautiful children, two adult daughters, 16 year old twin girls and a 12 year old son who loved and adored him.  

Anyone who knew Paul knows what a great mate he was to his friends.  Paul had an infectious smile, a wicked sense of humour and always provided a shoulder to lean on. Paul was heavily invested in his local community and children's sporting groups such as Shire Gymnastics, Sutherland Little Athletics, and Cronulla Sutherland Sharks Touch Football. 

The Bristow's are an incredible family and have given so much to the Sutherland Shire over the past years it would be fantastic if we could all pull together to give something back to Sonja and the kids.  Any money raised will be used to cover Paul's funeral and everyday expenses such as food, bills and mortgage repayments. 

Paul was taken from us far too early. If you have ever had a beer with Paul, or he made you laugh and smile please consider donating. Paul would want more than anything for his family to be looked after in his absence.
