Friends of Jeremy Tyndall have been humbled with the support of a fundraiser for the paralysed Waaia teenager to be held tonight.

Jeremy, 16, is rehabilitating at a Melbourne hospital after injuring his spine competing at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships in Queensland last month.

The reigning state 250cc champion broke a vertebra after falling off his motorcycle and another competitor rode into his back.

Kerrie Hickey is one of four organisers of tonight’s goods and services auction to raise money for Jeremy and his family.

Mrs Hickey said sporting collectables and travel vouchers were among 55 items to be auctioned.

She said meal and taxi vouchers were among 30 raffle prizes.

‘‘A lot of people have come to us to donate things, we haven’t had to go chasing them,’’ Mrs Hickey said.

‘‘It has shown true community spirit.’’

The auction is at Waaia Recreation Reserve, on Nathalia-Katamatite Rd, from 7pm.

Tickets are $40, and include a two-course meal and entertainment by Sonita.

Mrs Hickey said 245 tickets had already been sold.

Phone Kirby Sprunt on 0404599713, Brodie Hickey on 0458061299, Kerrie Hickey on 0419002080 or Stacey Hickey on 0438060698 to make donations or for more information.
