Our dear friend and colleague Robert Dubler SC, a cherished member of the 12th Floor, became a quadriplegic in May 2016 as a result of a surfing accident. He is working hard at recovery but the road is long, difficult and expensive. Robert was a keen swimmer and one of his favourite events each year was to swim the Cole Classic ocean race from Manly to Shelly Beach. This year the event is being held on 5 February 2017. James Renwick and Andrew Harding of the 12th Floor will swim in honour of Robert and in doing so hope to raise some funds towards his recovery. Your donation is appreciated.
