New Hope helps Rotary with flood repair work

12 October 2011

The Rotary Club of North Ipswich’s flood repair work with the Karalee Community Association received a $50,000 boost from the New Hope Corporation today.

New Hope’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Rob Neale today handed over the cheque to the Rotary Club of North Ipswich at a home in Karalee.

Mr Neale said New Hope’s donation would remind the community that repair work still needs to be done following last January’s floods.

“New Hope’s headquarters are in Ipswich and everyone in our company is very much aware that there are some homeowners in our community who still need a helping hand after the floods,” he said.

“We are pleased that our contribution will assist the great work that is being done by the Rotary Club of North Ipswich in helping these people get their homes back in shape.”

The latest donation comes after New Hope presented Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale with a $50,000 donation to the Ipswich Flood Appeal on 13 September.

At the time, Cr Pisasale said New Hope’s sizeable $50,000 donation would go towards helping residents and sporting clubs still rebuilding after the devastating January flood.

New Acland mine is owned and operated by the New Hope Group which is part of the New Hope Corporation Limited (NHCL). NHCL is an Australian-owned diversified energy company listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).

New Hope has been based in Ipswich since its establishment in 1952.
