Although the engagement is off, Rhys still wants to support Vanessa in her hour of need. Realising the medical treatment for baby Patrick will cost a fortune, and well aware that Lucas can’t afford it, Rhys asks for Kate’s help to set up a charity foundation, though he doesn’t want Vanessa to find out he’s behind it. Kate warns him that donations are always slow at the beginning, so Rhys decides to get things moving by selling his car and donating the proceeds to the foundation. Later, Susan brings the news to Vanessa who’s bowled over to find $23,000 in the fund…



Andrew invites Tash to Paul’s birthday dinner and she happily accepts until Sheila suggests she needs to make a good impression now she’s his girlfriend. Tash dresses up and is on her best behaviour, to the bemusement to Andrew and the family, but when Andrew covers her dessert in chilli sauce, the real Tash emerges in spectacular form.



And Lucas is worried about how to find the money for Patrick’s medical treatment. Selling his garage is not the answer, so he is tempted to try gambling again. Fortunately, he manages to stay strong and seeks the help of his sponsor, Sonya.
