Northern NSW : Summer 2012-2013
MM helps again Electrical wholesalers, MM Electrical Merchandising (TLE) recently held a golf day for contractors, raising $6,000 . The money was used to purchase purpose built toolboxes for contractors who work at the Rescue Helicopter’s Broadmeadow maintenance hangar. Chief Engineer, David Oswald, said that the toolboxes were required as part of the Service’s control process. ‘TLE and its suppliers and contractors have been a valued supporter of the Service for a number of years. This latest support follows its assistance when the hangar had to be rebuilt after the 2007 Pasha Bulker storm’ he said. The golf day was also supported by Haymans. Fore...the community Charity golf days are still one of the most popular ways for people to support. The Central Coast Charity Golf Day was held on Friday 19 October attracting 110 players. We are grateful to all our players including professional golfer, Nicky Henderson who helped to raise $8,800. Thank you also to our major sponsors Bishop Collins, APEX & BJ Howes Metaland; new hole sponsors Wallarah 2 Coal Project and Priority Business Lawyers; and event partners Magenta Shores, StarFM, Central Coast Express Advocate, Roses 2Go, Lollypotz, Tooheys and Drayton’s Family Wines. Rain didn’t spoil Challenge Despite dismal weather, the ninth annual Charity Golf Challenge at Port Macquarie was a great success. Service Community Liaison Officer, Belinda Power, said that it was a great day of fun with tremendous support from the business and wider community. John Oxley Motors put-up a brand new car for the hole in one competition. Unfortunately the prize didn’t go off even though there was plenty of attempts with 21 teams competing on the day. Angel Billy Golf Classic Fifteen years ago, Ron Smith and a group of people from the Nelson Bay area created the Angel Billy Golf Day. To this day Ron has not missed an event and is still on the event committee. With 212 starters the day raised $33,000 and attracted tremendous support from local businesses and the community. Chairman of the Nelson Bay Volunteer Support Group, Gary Troon, said the event exceeded all expectations with many thanks to Ron Willock, Ros Metham and the volunteer committee.
