A Bull for Starship

2020 wasn’t just the year that the Covid 19 pandemic hit us hard, it was also the year that Nick, Sharon & Brian’s Grandson and Tracy and Rob’s Nephew, was diagnosed with Leukaemia.

“I still remember the day when we were told about Nick’s diagnosis.” Rob says. “I rang Dean straight away but he was rendered speechless as we all were. Having young kids ourselves we couldn’t fathom what it would be like to hear the worse news a parent could receive.”

The family did their utmost to support them in anyway possible from farm work to frozen home cooked meals. Every day we have Nick here, is all thanks to the great team at Starship Children’s Hospital and the dedicated support of his Mum & Dad.

Starship Children's Health provides a wide range of complex medical, surgical, cardiac and mental health services for children and young people throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific. Starship is a major teaching centre. It aims to lead the nation in paediatric training and research. 

With this in mind Brian came up with an idea to donate the proceeds from one of Shian’s rising two-year-old angus bulls from this years sale to Starship. After talking to Dean & Teresa discovered they were going to do the same. The proceeds of these bulls will go towards the Oncology Department at Starship and hopefully go on to help save another young Kiwi’s life.

This year’s sale is also significant for another reason in that we celebrate 50 years of breeding Angus cattle for Shian Angus and the Sherson family.

Shian Angus will hold their sale on the 2nd of June 2022 @ 11a.m

If you would like to donate you can contact Starship on 09 367 0000 or visit their Website.
