In October some of the GLNG project's more adventurous employees took part in the Stock Up For Hope Charity Drove.
Over 400 head of cattle were moved from Moura to Emerald via Rolleston and Springsure, arriving in time for the Cattle Sale at Emerald Saleyards last week.
This biennial event sees corporate executives, cattle farmers, chaplains and property owners join together to drove cattle and raise funds to support young people in regional Queensland.
The Drove travelled through a number of landholder properties on the GLNG project's pipeline route and property owners joined the group for a camp fire dinner, some country music and the occasional turtle race.
GLNG's CSG Drilling and Completions Manager, Kelvin Wuttke, participated in the Drove and said it was a fantastic way to spend time with a great group of people and raise funds for charity.
“All money raised is donated to support young people, so even though my horse riding skills are atrocious and there was a lot of pain after two and a half days of solid riding, it was definitely worth it!” Kelvin said.
“It also provided a great opportunity to spend time with landholders and answers some of their questions.”
Every cent from the cattle sold is going towards helping regional youth through the SU QLD school chaplaincy program.
The program ensures school chaplains across Queensland are able to provide a listening ear and pastoral support to thousands of young people.
