Hunter Valley Operations donates to Wildlife Aid

Hunter Valley Operations donates $5,000 as part of $30,000 to local charities

Six local community service organisations each received a $5000 boost to their cause thanks to Hunter Valley Operations last week.

The $30,000 in donations was redirected to local charities from the employee Christmas gift voucher programme after it was agreed the programme was no longer feasible in the current tough economic conditions.

Hunter Valley Operations General Manager Operations Tom Lukeman said “At a time where Australian coal mines are battling to remain internationally competitive with low coal prices and the high Australian dollar, it has become unfeasible to continue our employee gift voucher programme. “Instead, I asked employees to nominate charities to benefit from a portion of the funds and I have the pleasure of presenting $5000 donations each to six deserving local community service organisations.”

Employees nominated 19 charities that were then shortlisted by the Hunter Valley Operations Site Donations Committee based on locality and if the group had previously received funding from the mine.

The six chosen charities included Singleton Cancer Appeal, Wildlife Aid, Singleton Senior Citizens, Singleton Neighbourhood Centre, St Vincent de Paul, Singleton and Murrane Women’s Housing…

Wildlife Aid Treasurer Di Paice said “Hunter Valley Operation’s donation couldn’t have come at a better time. Wildlife Aid is completely reliant on donations and volunteers and we desperately needed funding to go towards animal food, the payment of vet treatments and running costs.

“We really couldn’t do without the support and sponsorship from companies like Coal & Allied that help us to provide this important service to benefit wildlife, the environment and to create a safer place for us to work and live.”

The cheques were presented by Tom to representatives from each organisation, including a baby wombat joined by its carers from Wildlife Aid, at Coal & Allied’s Singleton shopfront.
