"$45,000 a 'sweetener' for Local Charities"
The value of vending machines at Evolution’s Cowal gold mine cannot be underestimated with another extremely generous donation recently presented to Country Hope and Can Assist.
It takes a lot of confectionery and drinks to make up $45,000 profit but that is exactly the amount the Cowal Gold Mine fundraising group were able to collect during their latest effort.
Local members of Country Hope and Can Assist were on hand to receive the donation from a group they say works very hard to keep the vending machines stocked at all times.
General Manager of Country Hope, Ellie Webb said she was astounded by the donation.
“It just amazes me how much this community does for Country Hope, thankyou so much,” she said.
Country Hope looks after families who have a child diagnosed with cancer or other life threatening illnesses throughout the Riverina with all monies raised locally staying local.
Likewise Can Assist West Wyalong branch supports cancer patients with expenses while receiving their treatment, another local organisation supporting local people.
Both organisations have thanked Bernardi’s Supermarket for their contribution and Evolution Mining for supporting both charities with both continuing to work together for local families.
