‘Fester’ gives thanks

‘Fester’ gives thanks Image

Popular Docklands biker “Fester” last month paid tribute to two local businesses which helped his group raised funds to battle child abuse.

Fester is a member of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA), which empowers children not to be afraid after suffering abuse. When not on his Harley, he is known as Vince Failla and runs the car park at Digital Harbour.

Party Boat Cruises and Renzo’s Bar both contributed vouchers, which were auctioned at a fundraiser in Collingwood in March.  The evening raised more than $2000 for the cause.

“We appreciate the support of these local businesses who are helping us in our work to protect abused children,” Fester said.

He said BACA sent a clear message that abused children were part of his organisation, and that its members were prepared to lend their physical and emotional support to them by affiliation and their physical presence.

“We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse,” Fester said. “We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.”
