Northern NSW : Spring 2011
Payroll deduction program More and more companies in the region are following their employees in suppor ting the Service. Thousands of employees donate to the Service through their pay across the region served by the Service. The payroll deduction program means that a small, regular amount comes out of the pay packet each fortnight. It’s usually not missed by those donating and is tax deductible. Some companies are now matching the donations that their employees make to send a message to their staff that they respect and support their choice. The latest business to do this is EC Throsby of Singleton. This company is a private, wholly Australian owned beef processing company. The Throsby Family have been processing livestock in the Hunter Valley for over 60 years from 1951. Located in Singleton, E C Throsby is a progressive beef packer whose products are marketed worldwide. Their support is greatly appreciated by all who rely on this Service.
