Nosh Narrabri gives back to the community

Committee makes donation

Nosh Narrabri president Darrell Tiemens and vice president Kate Logan present a cheque for $1244 to representative of the Youth Shack, Anna Dugdale.

The 2017 Nosh Narrabri was the most successful yet, a major community event which drew thousands of people.

The Nosh was made possible by generous financial and in kind support from local businesses and individuals plus money raised by the Nosh raffle and events like the Great Australian Home Brew Competition and the Australian Cheesecake Competition.

“This was the most expensive Nosh ever to stage - our expenses were over $125,000,” said Nosh Narrabri committee president Darrell Tiemens.

“However, our policy has always been to distribute any excess funds back into the community.”

The Nosh committee will make donations to three local charitable organisations.

The first beneficiary is the Narrabri Youth Shack which provides support, mentoring and a place to hang out for young people.
