    In 2016 a very much loved and larger than life man, Peter Grima, lost his battle to Pancreatic Cancer. To honour this amazing man, a team of seven of his closest mates banded together and formed the “Wish You Were Here” team. They were then joined by an eighth man, who himself is a cancer survivor and is currently supporting a close friend and relative undertaking treatment for Pancreatic Cancer. This team of eight have set themselves one of the most gruelling and emotional challenges - to walk the Kokoda Trail in memory of Peter.

Not only did we have to find a new location for the walk but also a new local manager to take on the task of organising the event.
