Us 4 Gus


On 22 March this year, our great mate Angus ‘Gus’ McConnel was involved in a serious road accident. At about 6.00am he was riding his bicycle down Memorial Drive, Bar Beach when a car turned into his path towards the Bar Beach car park and collided with Gus and his bike.

Gus sustained very serious injuries including a complete spinal injury from C7 to T1. After a short time in John Hunter Hospital, he was transferred to Royal North Shore. After several operations, he is now in the Royal Rehabilitation Centre Spinal Unit in Ryde.


Please make all donations to Angus and his family into the following bank account details:

  • Account name: Angus McConnel Recovery Fund
