Black Nugget Cup raises $30,000 for charities

Peabody Wilpinjong has congratulated local businesses and its contractor companies  for their ongoing support of Mudgee charities at this year’s Mudgee ‘Black Nugget’ Cup.

Peabody and contractor companies  pledged a total of almost $30,000 for  three local charities as part of the weekend festival.

Peabody Wilpinjong General Manager, Ian Livingstone-Blevins said the local contractor  donations contribute to the viability of services for locals and support the work of  community organisations around Mudgee.

“It’s great to see our local contractors have joined Peabody and thrown their support  behind local charities as part of the Black Nugget Cup, this year.” said Mr Livingstone-Blevins.

“Many of these ‘Mum and Dad’ contractors, like the industry, are doing it tough at the  moment but dug deep on the weekend to help out needy local charities.” 

The local contractors’ donations complement Peabody Wilpinjong’s ongoing local  support and investment program.

“Peabody Wilpinjong is a long-time supporter of the Cup which every year raises money for hard-working local groups,” Mr Livingstone-Blevins said.

The donation will go to aged care providers - Pioneer House, disability service providers  - Lifeskills Plus and cancer research and treatment centre – Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

“Pioneer House, Lifeskills Plus and Chris O’Brien Lifehouse all contribute so much at  a local level.

“We’re proud to be able to support them through at this iconic community event.”

Pioneer House funding will be used to invest in facilities upgrades for the aged care  facility in Mudgee.

Lifeskills Plus funding will be used to upgrade facilities for the Mudgee-based disability  service provider.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse funding will help maintain a world class centre for the research  and treatment of cancer related        illnesses.
