A Story With Heart

Rhonda Theodosis is well-known businesswoman around Toowoomba . She used to have Rhonda’s Refits, but now runs the little shop “Groceries & More” in Margaret Street.
Peter Rookas, Chase and Rhonda TheodosisRhonda has for some time kept a collection box for the Toowoomba Hospital Renal Unit and asks people to drop their coins & change into the little box.. the background is that some years back, a local ‘busker’ Robert Kennedy would ‘busk’ after dark along Margaret Street, and the money he raised went to the Renal Unit where he was on dialysis for his condition.. Most of the night ‘larks’ knew him & always dipped into their pockets to help.. Sadly Rob died a few years back but before he did, he asked Rhonda to keep the collection box in the shop & keep the tradition of giving going…..
After Rob died, Rhonda kept her promise… and recently handed over $800 from the collections to Toowoomba Hospital Foundation CEO Peter Rookas with the help of her grandson 6 year-old Chase Theodoisis .
