A bank account has been set up to help Waimate stroke vicitim Mike Yong, who is in Christchurch’s Burwood Hospital undergoing rehabilitation.
Mr Yong, who used to be a partner in Artrio’s Art Cafe, recently suffered a massive stroke while visiting Waimate and an account has been set up at the ANZ Bank under the name of Mike (Artrio) Recovery Fund, account number 01 0893 0054558 00.
Friend Donette Fargher said Mike’s sudden illness sent shockwaves through the community and people have been quick to ask what they can do to help.
She said the three partners in Artrio’s Art Cafe, Mike Yong, Danny Tan and Tat Wei, made a huge contribution to the Waimate community while they were there.
Mr Tan, who returned to Malaysia last week, said Mr Yong is making an amazing recovery and improves every day.
“Our heartiest thanks to all our friends who pray for us.”
“To our beloved Waimate community, thanks for your cards, visits and support.”
