On 19 November 2018 we made a trip to Moree and Collarenabri to hand over food and farm produce to those less fortunate than ourselves during this drought our state is experiencing.
The Club has donated $7,500 to the Royal Flying Doctor Service for their services to the rural community at the most urgent times of need. Another $1450 will be donated to N.E.T.S (Natal Emergency Transport Service) for infant emergency treatment saving young lives, thanks to Neil Pullbrook, Nurse with N.E.T.S.
Upon our arrival into Moree airport we were met by Bessie and Bill Lambert, local farmers of Moree shire.
Bessie had prepared us a list of worthy recipients in detail with exactly what we were to buy for them and where we would meet to hand them over these goods and produce.
These goods were home consumables like half hams from the local Moree butcher, soft drinks, jellies, custard, Christmas puddings and cakes, tins of pineapple, bags of lollies, toilet paper.
Farm Produce was in 25 kg bags for their cattle dogs, lucerne for their horses, 30 kg bags of mixed grain for their cattle and sheep feeds all purchased from the local Moree and Collarenabri stores.
We kept the money in the local towns to help those small businesses stockholding for the farmers who are not buying anywhere near the amounts they were in the past.
Many local farmers would not respond to our searches throughout NSW, their pride was damaged as it was with the lack of rainfall, putting their hands out is their last resort.
Those we met were: Bessie and Bill Lambert, Steve Corey, George Leighton, Nicki Rapperly, David and Carol Humphreys, Kate Willis, Gaye Coleman, Buck Timmins, Rex and Dixie Stuthorpe.
Another 6 families were being met by Bessie and Bill, they live 2 hours away from Moree. Those we met came from 45 mins up to 1.5 hours from Moree and Collarenabri to receive the goods purchased for them.
We would like to thank the following people for their support, service and help:-
Debbie, Myanna, Giarne, Sienna Wedes, Bessie and Bill Lambert, Simon Mikkelson, Ray Murray, Kevin Felton, John Morrison, Paul Ware, Randal Speer, Greg Jones, Les Hemperger, Terrence Payne, Robyn Fern, Artists in the St George area who donated superb fine art to our auction, Members and Guests who collectively donated goods to assist our auction.
The Pinnacle, Hurstville is undergoing a massive transformation to turn it into a stunning new recreational hub for members right in the heart of Hurstville.
Every member should be excited about the great new changes that will make our club the premier entertainment place in Hurstville. Bright, light, open spaces, a street level café and more places for people to meet friends and family will create the perfect place for all members.
All this state of the art design doesn’t mean everything is new. Our wonderful Chinese restaurant remains with even better facilities for great dining. Gaming facilities will be bigger and better employing the latest in new technology. A new outdoor gaming area with terrace will be established on the first floor along with a brand new contemporary TAB and sports bar.
This bold multi-million dollar next step in the revitalisation of the Pinnacle would not have been possible without your great support. The Board believes that the loyal members deserve a special Club that meets everyone’s recreational needs.
The Board expects that work on this exciting renovation will start towards the end of 2018 with a completion date scheduled for mid-2019.
The Pinnacle now has a new mobile app! Stay up to date while on the move. Our app will notify you on all upcoming deals, entertainment and promotions and much more.
