Leigh Creek Energy’s (LCK) major sponsorship helped make the Flinders Fest event in the far northern South Australian community of Hawker a success recently.
Locals, surrounding pastoralists and tourists alike enjoyed the annual event’s market atmosphere, which is also utilised as a community fundraiser.
Event organiser Chelsea Haywood said she and her committee of helpers and volunteers were extremely happy with the turnout and thankful for the generosity of support from locals and event sponsors.
“It all went really well,” Chelsea said.
“We had around 400 attended the event, which is a really good result for us.
“As we had already advertised the raffle and its prizes, we did lucky number draws for the three hampers, raising $150.”
“Thank you once again Leigh Creek Energy again for the support.”
LCK community sponsorship officer Tammie Salvemini said Flinders Fest is a perfect opportunity for the company to support Flinders Ranges communities.
“LCK happily supports events like Flindersfest,” Tammie said.
“Not only does it support the town but gets families out together, which the kids love.”
