Dig deep for Judd

Two fundraising events will take place next weekend to help local Judd Carpenter in his ongoing cancer treatment.
The first is a ‘Tradies Night’ that will be held on Friday, February 22 at the West Football Club starting at 7pm. Entry is $5 and there will be a door prize, raffles and more to help raise money for Carpenter who was diagnosed with leukaemia in late 2018.
Carpenter has now spent two months undergoing treatment in Adelaide and will be off work for an extended period of time as part of his recovery.
Following the Friday night function, a golf day will be held on Sunday, February 24 at the Broken Hill Golf Course.
The event will be a four-person ambrose with a shotgun start at 10:30am. There’s $1500 worth of prizes up for grabs including for teams from first to tenth as well as longest drives, nearest the pins and a putting competition with a twist. There will also be an auction after the day’s play.
Almost 30 teams have already registered and bookings can be made by calling the golf course on 8087 9099.
“We have to thank all the various businesses for their support,” golf day organiser Mick Thornberry said.
“All the money raised will go to the ongoing medical expenses for Judd.”
“We know Judd would do the same for us if we were going through what he is,” said Lachie Harvey, a close mate of Carpenter’s.
