The inaugural #4Matty Celebrity Golf Day is designed as a fabulous day of golf, networking and fundraising – all for a great cause as we help raise the $200,000 required to get Matty and his family into a purpose built home.

A freak accident in the first game of the 2015 rugby season changed the lives of Maciu Vosa (Matty), his wife Kylie, and their two young children, Ezekia and Ariella, forever. Matty broke his neck after a regulation maul collapsed in general play under the weight of a phalanx of team-mates and opponents and he is now a C4 complete quadriplegic. He has no feeling from his upper chest down, but has some limited movement in his arms.

A Trust Fund and Working group has been active since the early days following the accident, raising funds and helping support Matty and his family. This year’s major Fundraiser is the Eynsbury Celebrity Golf Day.

All funds raised will go towards the cost of building a wheelchair accessible home for the family. This will allow Matty to manoeuvre around the house and give him the opportunity to do the other things we all take for granted such as going inside the children’s bedrooms to read them a book and kiss them goodnight.
