Fundraising Lunch

Reid Stockfeeds owner Rosli Reid (front centre), Daniel Allen (back left) and Trevor Gardner (second from back left) present Phyllis McLeish (left front) with a cheque for more than $8000 for South West Healthcare’s oncology unit equipment.

2014 marks the fourth year Reid Stockfeeds has raised funds for cancer in the month of October taking total funds raised to more than $35,000 for the Warrnambool hospital.

This year’s contribution helped raise funds to a total of $29,164 enabling the replacement of an aged fleet of infusion pumps, which deliver chemotherapy drugs to patients.

Fifty cents from every tonne of grain sold during the month of October is donated to the organisation. The South West oncology unit was chosen as the beneficiary of funds raised in order to make a tangible, local benefit rather than donating to a larger national campaign.

An annual October Day festival is held at the Cobden mill site. The event provides an opportunity for staff and customers to come together and have an enjoyable day out but also contribute donations to a very worthy cause. Congratulations to all staff and customers who contributed!

At some point Piesy must’ve taken a bull-riding lesson from me.
