Northern NSW : Summer 2017
Returning for its second year the Denman Pig Races topped the ‘ m ust see’ local sporting events for 2016. Australian Thoroughbred racing pigs took centre stage at the Denman football oval with Queensland based breeder Kevin Kiley also doubling as the race caller. Dressed in their brightly coloured jackets and proudly displaying their sponsors name, the baby pigs tackled an obstacle course complete with hay bales, tyres, trigger gates and ramps. The Calcutta event featured seven races with sweeps where the winner of each race received half of the pool with the remainder donated to the Rescue Helicopter. The winning pig was the first to put its snout in the trough of milk at the finish line. Other attractions included market stalls, laser tag, jumping castle and a Vintage and Classic car display with some spectacular closing fireworks to celebrate raising $24,900.

Joan was especially thanked for her willingness to do whatever was required with a cheerful outlook and lovely smile which will be greatly missed. Good luck Joan and thank you.

The annual Rescue Ball was Rio-themed and was another gold-medal event. More than 450 people attended a great South American night on 24 September and helped raise more than $40,000 for the Service. Bishop Peter Chiswell Hall, Calrossy Anglican School William Cowper Campus might just as easily have been Carnivale. Gold sponsors of the night included Goodwin Kenny, Insight Vacations, Pacific National, Westfund and CH On Peel. Valued support was also provided by presenting partners Single Builders, Tamworth Tile House and Pulse Kitchens. Read the full story on the WRHS website.
