Christmas Cheer for Oakey Hospital

19 February 2014

A change of pace was decided for the New Hope Group Annual General Meeting corporate gathering this Christmas past.

New Hope elected to donate $5,000 to the Oakey Hospital and Dr EAF McDonald Nursing Home in lieu of the usual corporate gifts to each attendee in November 2013.

New Hope’s Executive General Manager for Mining Jim Randell said the donation in lieu of the annual gifts was a further way of giving back to the Oakey community.

“The Oakey Hospital and nursing home has a special place in the hearts and minds of a lot of community members,” he said.

“New Hope is always looking for ways in which we can support the communities in which we work, and the people with who we work.

“Attendees were all very enthusiastic about the charitable donation as opposed to a gift, and thought it was a wonderful idea leading into Christmas.”
