Chamen’s Supa IGA has embraced giving back to locals, with their Community Chest donations, benefitting the Condobolin Amateur Pistol Club and the Condobolin branch of Can Assist.

The funds are raised a number of ways but mostly throught the purchase of products with an IGA Community Chest logo on the label.

Each organisation received a cheque for $4050.37.

Store Manager for Chamen’s Supa IGA, Christian Dagorne, was on hand to prtesent the cheques to Magaret Baxter (representing the Condobolin Amateur Pistol Club) and Laura Tickle (Representing Condobolin branch of Can Assist).

“We are very fortunate and grateful to be chosen as a recipient this year,” Mrs Baxter said.

“We will use these funds to help add to our solar power, make improvements to our Club by rebuilding our ranges and purchasing more pistols for members to use.

Our Club has grown in numbers from around 15 to 40 now, and our junior numbers are around 11. This donation will certainly be put to good use.”

Laura Tickle said she was very thankful to be receiving such a generous amount.

“It is wonderful to receive this donation, which will help us to continue to help residents and their familes who are affected by cancer,” she stated.
