In April 2023 we donated $250 to YP Space MNC in their Beat the Bucket Challenge, raising funds to reduce the impacts of youth homelessness in Kempsey. Craig Milburn, General Manager of Kempsey Shire Council, took the challenge and did NOT beat the bucket but ended up drenched for the good cause.
In May 2023 we supported the Macleay Valley Mustangs RLFC Mothers Day raffle where funds were raised for the Mustangs club. We donated two wireless headphones valued at $99 each. The club held a special Mother’s Day event, treating Mum’s to lunch while they watched the game.

Leading up to the Christmas of 2022 we donated over $1100 of gifts to Mission Australia so local kids wouldn’t go without the excitement of receiving gifts on Christmas. Two trolleys full and gifts for babies to teens.
In December 2022 we donated a $299 Blueant X4 Karaoke Speaker to the Frederickton RFS as part of their Christmas fund raiser. The lucky ticket holder was a Frederickton family, who’ll no doubt enjoy some great tunes.
