My Dad turns 90; he helped others his whole life.

Our Dad will soon be turning 90 years old. His name is George. He has spent his life assisting people in the community. Driving people to appointments; visiting the lonely and elderly frail; fixing things, being a handyman - changing light globes, fuses, and washers; feeding the dogs when people are away; delivering firewood; collecting food and distributing it to those in need. Twice a week he still picks up (at 3am!) and then delivers a boot full of bread to the community.
He has volunteered at the Orthodox Church, at Russian House and also the Russian Ethnic Rep. Council for many years.
He would always put himself last, acting selflessly to assist those that needed help; doing acts of unseen charity.
He was recently flicking through a newspaper and saw a promotion for the Ghan train trip, and expressed an interest in going. What a great 90th birthday present that would be.
Dad deserves a holiday! We are wanting to send him on a trip of a lifetime as thanks.  If you know and love him as much as we do, and wish to contribute, please click on the link to donate. (But just a little bit, people impacted by fires come first).
His birthday is on the 17th January, and his Namesday is on the 17th of February. That is when we want to send him off on the Adelaide - Darwin leg of the trip and a few days of R&R in Darwin itself.
Everyone who comes across my Dad, immediately senses what a kind and merciful person he is. This trip will mean the world to Dad.
He has never really had a holiday, and has not seen much of Australia (the country he adopted nearly 60 years ago). This trip will tick both boxes.
He will be so grateful!
Thank-you!
Fr Alexander, Kathy, Irena, Nick
