Funds raised for important community centre
27 July 2023
The GFG Alliance SIMEC Mining Tahmoor Coking Coal commitment to community is not just about dollars and corporate sponsorships … it’s also about our people and their connection to the region.
This was illustrated last month as a group of Tahmoor employees attended the Wollondilly Mayor’s Charity Night.
Peter Vale (Executive General Manager), Shayley McCracken (commercial analyst), Neil Moran (mechanical lead), Zina Ainsworth (Environment and Community Manager) and Clint Mason (Head of Coal Operations), along with partners and friends, made up the Tahmoor group that went the extra mile to dress up in the 1930s theme in support of the ball and its worthwhile charity.
Peter Vale said the funds raised on the night went towards the important work of the Camden/Wollondilly Domestic Violence Centre.
“We proudly sponsor and support a lot of local charities at a corporate level but it is just as satisfying that we have a family here at Tahmoor that is willing to go outside of the working hours to attend these sorts of events and contribute to the community,” Peter Vale said.
“The Camden/Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee is an essential service and I’m super proud of our crew that were there to support our mayor, the shire and the domestic violence centre.”
Local Domestic Violence Committees are a program of the NSW Strategy to Reduce Violence Against Women, which seeks to decrease violence against women through the promotion of collaborative partnerships between government agencies, non-government agencies and women’s groups and services.
The Camden/Wollondilly Domestic Violence Committee raises local community understanding of the issues of domestic violence and its impact on women, children and the community. More information can be found on the centre’s website.
