With good news in short supply at the moment, Mangoola Open Cut is continuing to provide much needed community support. With the assistance of the operation’s workforce, a $5,000 donation was made this week to Upper Hunter Homeless Support. General Manager of UHHS, Lewis Millington-Blazey says that their case load has increased significantly in recent months, with the neediest in our local communities heavily impacted by a pandemic led economic downturn.

 “At such difficult times within our country, the team at Mangoola open cut mine, Glencore are committed to ensuring organisations like Upper Hunter Homeless Support are well-supported throughout our busiest time in history,” Mr Millington-Blazey announced at the presentation of the funds on Wednesday.

“The remainder of the funds will go towards funding training for our team to assist with cultural awareness.

“We are grateful for the generosity of the team at Mangoola open cut Glencore.”
