Kudos Goes to Miners

Cherith Weis




THIS week, the town of Blackwater is highlighted with a fundraising effort for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Paul Barnard, Mine Challenge chairperson at the Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland, recently attended the inaugural BMA Blackwater Mine Business Excellence Award night in Blackwater. Mr Barnard presented the Business Excellence within Community and Fundraising award to Blackwater Mine administration assistant Pam McGorrery.

He also presented the Leukaemia Foundation's Mine Challenge Shield to the mine for being the highest fundraising mine in Queensland as part of this year's World's Greatest Shave Mine Challenge. The site raised just over $39,000 which also earned them state and national trophies for being on the Top 30 fundraisers list in Queensland and Australia.

He said he looked forward to working with the mine again during the 2011 World's Greatest Shave Mine Challenge

Registrations are now open for World's Greatest Shave 2011. Visit worldsgreatest shave.com for more details.

The 2011 World's Greatest Shave is on from March 10 to 12.
