No shortage of help for young fundraiser
Wednesday, 12th May, 2010
Willyama High School student and charity worker, Hayden Zammit, now has the support of several organisations for his trip to the US in July.
Rotary Broken Hill has donated $2000 towards his trip to the Global Young Leaders conference where students aged from 15 to 18 will have the chance to voice their views on world issues.
"Hayden has raised over $30,000 collectively for the community, so it's time to give back to him for his work," said Rotary treasurer Kevin Hind.
Hayden brought his case to Rotary and the organisation decided to donate towards his once in a lifetime trip after hearing of an impressive body of work.
He has also received donations from two other major organisations.
The NSW Department of Education gave $1000 and Rex Airlines donated a return flight from Sydney valued at $600.
Hayden has hosted several Biggest Morning Teas, raised money for Camp Quality and was one of 2009's recipients of the Australia Day Awards.
"It was great to have community support from local regions and state levels," he said.
The 11-day conference runs from July 11 to 22 in Washington D.C. and New York City.
