Northern NSW : Rescue Winter 2017
Our community There are two things that always bring a community together – sport and doing something to raise funds for a good cause. As part of the excitement of hosting the final Country v City rugby league game at Mudgee, a special night was held to honour legends of the game. Hosted by television personality and Mudgee local Ken Sutcliffe, about 210 fans rubbed shoulders with their favourite players, both past and present, and enjoyed entertaining stories from Brad Fittler, Craig Fitzgibbon, Steve ‘B locker’ Roach and Paul Sironen. With strong support from Country Rugby League and Classic Sportswear, the night raised $13,000. The biggest auction prize was a shared helicopter ride with Steve Roach and Wayne Pearce to deliver the match-day trophy to the stadium. Leaping leaders High flyers from Moree, Narrabri and Tamworth abseiled down B&W Rural’s 10-storey silo in Moree during the inaugural Leaders’ Leap for Life on 18 June. In teams of two, 15 local celebrities and business leaders helped raise more than $30,000 with about $8,000 collected through an auction and individual donations on the day. Combined effort Holding the Tag a Calf sale to better coincide with the weaner season resulted in 4,000 cattle going under the hammer when the annual fundraiser combined with the Peel Valley Machinery Feature Weaner Sale at Tamworth Regional Livestock Exchange (TRLX). Now in its sixth year, the event raised $7,000 on 5 May thanks to outstanding support from the local farming community, TRLX, Tamworth Selling Agents and Peel Valley Machinery. The sale attracted an exceptional line-up of cattle with the best steer calves making $1,340, while the heifers topped at $1,185. Yearling steers sold to $1,445 for big Hereford steers, best weaner heifers made $1,550 and the best yearling heifers sold to $1,170 for weaned Angus heifers. Steggles support More fundraising efforts from Steggles during the first quarter of this year raised $38,500 as part of their Charity Nest Dollar for Dollar matching program through payroll deduction, raffles and employee drinks.
