THE Regional Agricultural Show Development Grants Program is injecting $20 million into 122 regional agricultural show societies, including Bedgerabong PA & H Association Inc.
The upgrades at the Bedgerabong Showgrounds will include the development of a multipurpose livestock facility, fence repairs, installation of barriers and an upgrade to the watering system.
This is great news for organisers of Currajong fundraiser, Australia’s Biggest Bogan Festival after the 2020 version of the event as postponed due to COVID-19.
ABBF organisers Brad Gibson and Luke Acheson (pictured) were stoked with the announcement.
“We are very excited about this development and needed some good news after the hard year this has been for everyone,” said Luke Acheson.
“I know many are pleased we can move forward and raise some vital funds for Currajong and other charities,” he said.
Dane Millerd of Currajong Disability Services was equally pleased with the announcement.
“Events like this raise important funds for support programs, resources and many other things,” said Dane.
“We can’t state enough how grateful we are to the guys and the ABBF committee – you’re all amazing!”
