Yanakie Campdraft gives back to community

THE Yanakie Campdraft continues to attract novices and experienced riders from all over Victoria and this year will again feature excitement for all the family.

Running from 6am to 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday February 14 and 15, food and refreshments will be available for purchase and entry will be free!

For over 20 years, the vast majority of proceeds from the Yanakie Campdraft events have been ploughed back into local community organisations and facilities, and dollars generated at the most recent events saw very generous donations made this week, including $3000 to South Gippsland Hospital for the purchase of equipment, $3000 to the Hospital’s Youth Assist Clinic to help enable the program to continue, $1000 to the Prom Coast Centres for Children, and $1000 to the Foster Primary School’s Kitchen Garden Program.

“We are very pleased to be able to donate funds raised at the campdraft events to local organisations, keeping the money in the area and providing services which are much-needed by the local community,” said Yanakie Campdraft committee president Kevin Thorburn.

This success of the Yanakie Campdraft is made possible by the generosity of sponsors, the hard work of committee members, and the support provided by helpers and volunteers. Businesses (or individuals) who would like to assist in sponsoring the Yanakie Campdraft are welcome to call committee secretary Stella Bowman on 0408 832 470 to discuss how they can be a part of delivering much-need funds to local services and organisations.

The Yanakie Campdraft will take place on Saturday February 14 and 15 at the Yanakie Reserve, located behind the Yanakie Hall and promises to be a fun-filled event for the whole family.
