Property Shop Trades Auction in aid of Mudgee Hospital and Rescue Squad.

Hugh Bateman from the Property Shop hopes Tradies Night on Thursday will see Mudgee’s generosity continue.

This Thursday the Property Shop will hold Tradies Night, an annual fundraiser that this year will support the Mudgee Rescue Squad’s new truck campaign and the Mudgee Hospital Maternity Ward. Now in its fifth year the Tradies Night has always been held with the objective of supporting a local charity or cause of some description.
On Thursday the Property Shop will hold a charity auction for the night.

There will also be a raffle raising money.
Hugh Bateman from the Property Shop hoped the night would see a continuation of Mudgee’s generosity particularly from local tradies, which has been seen in the Building a Positive Future project.
“The tradies are amazing, we’ve found over the years, with their support on things like the PCYC Houses, tradies stepped up and did a lot of that work in kind,” he said. “That’s the sort of people we have in this town and in our trades?
Mr Bateman also said the night was a chance for the Property Shop to thank the tradies for their work throughout the year.
“The main reason we do it is to thank our trades people who actively participate in the maintenance, repairs, construction and so forth with us as a company” he said. “It’s an end of year thing, we supply the barbecue and the drinks and it’s a function that’s a way of saying thanks.”
