Wagga Wagga Takes Two entrant Ben Hinton raises $18,000 for Country Hope

Country Hope has received a wonderful contribution of $18,000 from Ben Hinton who was an entrant in the 2017 Wagga Wagga Takes Two event. The funds were raised by Ben during his lead up to the gala night. The WWT2 is an annual event where local people who have never performed and only ever sung in the shower, are teamed up with a local musician / singer and do live performances over three nights in front of 300 people. Ben, a podiatrist at the Active Foot Clinic in Wagga,  and his mentor, Anthony Melton, were brilliant. The WWT2 facebook page has highlights and photographs of the production which this year raised in excess of $450,000 for local charities. Well done Ben from all of us at Country Hope!!
